I had created this a while ago so I can quickly copy a text file and paste the contents to an email. Since then I have decided to make it much better (and it was also requested on freewaregenius.com) and release it here first for beta testing before I post it on my site.
Copy Contents adds a context menu item to files allowing you to copy the contents of that file to the clipboard. Supported files are plain text files and image files (jpg, pcx, png, bmp, tga, gif, tif).
Please download the final release from http://starpunch.blogspot.com/p/copy-contents.html
