Read Windows clipboard contents into a lua variable?

Post by Prooffreader » 02 Mar 2017, 16:00

Just wondering if it one can read (text) contents of Windows clipboard into a variable, alter them with lua patterns, and then either write them back to the clipboard or simply type them.

Not sure if Lua hnadles is itself by some "system" library (would guess no) but should not be difficult to extend luamacros with cliboard management functions.
I like this idea.
