Today I needed to write a quick script that does some operations on
colors. Because I'm trying to learn Vim and I'm trying to master the
command line (not the standard Windows one, but
PyCmd), of course I wrote it
with command-line usage in mind. The script starts taking shape, so
let's use it. Well, it prints out the desired output. What next? Let's
redirect its output to the clipboard. A quick Google search revealed the
clip utility, which copies to the clipboard its stdin.
colors.py middle #000 #FFF | clip
Something's wrong - pasting won't work. The output shows up ok in the console, but it won't redirect …continue.
