Clipo is a tool that works over tcp/ip and allows users to send and receive
clipboard data between the follwing OSes: AOS3, AOS4, MORPHOS, AROS and WinXP.

You just select any part of text data, copy it to clipboard and press "alt+s".
The data automatically sends over tcp/ip to the other computers clipboard (which
address you setup when running the programm before) and computer will have that
data in clipboard already.

To be more understanable, lets take usuall situation. You have 2 computers: one
is amiga with AOS4, and other one, are x86 with WinXP. You run on aos4
"clipo" binary, in which you setup local address / local port and remote address
/remote port. And you run "clipo" binary on WinXP, which you also setup in
correct way. Now, you copy what you want on any machine to clipboard and press
"alt+s". And "clipo" send the data from one clipboard, to another. You not need
to do anything else.  In more easy words: you press on WinXP "alt+s", and your
AOS4 clipboard have that data, which have WinXp clipboard. And visa-versa.

At moment i have support of those OSes / Clipboards:

Aos3.x (tested on 3.9bb2)
Aos4.x (tested on 4.1 update 2)
Morphos (not native ! use 68k version at moment ! tested on 2.3beta)
Aros-i386 (tested on 2009 build of aros)
Windows (mainly tested on winxp, but should work with any win32 system).
WinUAE,Amithlon,UAE,etc with aos3.x binary.

You can use of course or 2 aos4 machines, or 2 aros machines, or does not matter
which ones becuase only matter its to run need it binary, and setup right tcp/ip
addresses and ports.

As you can see, for every OS i done native binary , and while for
aos3/aos4/aros/mos it was almost the same (with some modifiactions still), for
winxp it was of course completely different because of different clipboard
structure and os api itself. For the amigaos and amiga-related oses binary works
as commoditie, and can be killed/stopped via "exchange", or, if you run it from
command line, by classic ctrl+c break. For the WinXP, binary are resident , and
you can see it as "process" in task manager and can kill it when you wish. 

On all the oses programm use 2 hardcoded keys combo:

alt+s - send data
alt+q - exit/unload

Usage of programm itself are easy. For WinXP you have "clipo.ini" Where you
setup ips and ports. For other oses, the syntax is:

shell:> clipo --clip_loop <aos_ip> 100 <morphos_ip> 100

or if you want to run it in the backgorund only (placed in C: and run from
User-Startup or similar):

run <>NIL: clipo --clip_loop <aos_ip> 100 <morphos_ip> 100

--clip_loop is the main argument which is used right now.

Other Clipo arguements:

9/0.RAM:clipo/os4> clipo --help

syntax: [options] local_ip port <remote_ip> <port> <filename>


--clip_recv recieve data to clipboard immediately
--clip_send send data from clipboard immediately
--clip_loop send/recieve data to/from clip in loop
--data_recv recieve data to file
--data_send send file
--info some info


Some functions at moment are unstable and unoptimised, but --clip_loop works and
has been widely tested.

Still to be implemented:

1. support unix clipboards  (x-window)
2. support macos clipboards 
2. add options for your own hotkeys (to allow use with RDesktop for example) and
just to make it more user-friendly
3. character conversion (to make possible transfer language specific stuff)
4. tested and fix other argvs (which is easy, but not so usable)
5. make a native morphos binary (just because of have everything native).
