Retrieves data from the clipboard. The clipboard data may be of several types and it is encapsulated in a self-describing structure. This function is based on clipboardimage, by Saurabh Kumar, email@example.com, with heavy modifications to address various cross-platform issues. Tested on Windows XP, Mac OS 10.5, but should work on various versions of Linux.
New: You can paste file handles (with path) from the clipboard. You can either use the clipboardpaste function, or the new convenience function clipfile.
Very Very Useful
i second that
Very neat pair of utilities. Intuitive and easy to use. Clipboardpaste lets you copy a variety of data types from external sources into Matlab in a structured and unified way. Clipfile gives you full filenames, with path, in one operation. This ought to be part of standard Matlab in future versions!
