Yet another tool to wrap reads from, and writes to the OS clipboard -- it works from within SSH sessions too!
My life as a developer is a mess: at work I have a laptop with Windows 7 and Cygwin installed; I also have a Vagrant box, running Ubuntu, that I use to do the most of my development work. At home I have a Macbook Air, with Mac OS Sierra.
You can easily imagine how quickly I got tired of having to remember which of the various
getclip et al. command I should have run depending on which terminal window I had opened.
Wouldn't it be nice if I could read from the OS clipboard, or write to it, using a single command line tool? And wouldn't it awesome if the same tool worked on various operating systems? (at least the ones I use on a daily basis)
Read from the OS clipboard

It works remotely too!

> cb --listen & > ssh -R 5556:localhost:5556 user@remote remote> cb ________________ < cb is awesome! > ---------------- \ ^__^ \ (oo)\_______ (__)\ )\/\ ||----w | || ||
