I'm Windows 10 - 1909, with no other clipboard managers running

Looking forward to v0.2.0 !

Hello again :)

Please check your PM inbox (v0.2.0-beta link) & confirm your copy/paste experience on W10 to make public release!


> Should it have the option to start with Windows?

No need. I can put a shortcut in my startup folder if necessary

Got it! Adding image support to call it feature-complete :up:

Will "ping" as soon as it's done.


The main times I've ever needed an app like this was while filling out forms with text.

Okay, text-mode is complete! (thanks for your confirmation)

But if graphics would be just as easy to handle, I imagine that might be useful for pasting multiple clips in Photoshop!

Next version comes with image support :)

Question: Should it have the option to start with Windows?

Cheers & many thanks again,

Clipboard FIFO v0.1.0 released!


Info + Download page: Clipboard FIFO v0.1.0

Enjoy! :Thmbsup:

I hope they disappear from the list as each one is pasted!

Yep! It works that way.

BTW just sent you a pre-release download link by PM (Github), for you to check main functionality :)


^c^c^c ^v^v^v didn't work when I tried it.

Hello again! The core "^c^c^c ^v^v^v" functionality is programmed! :up:


Currently adding the "bells & whistles" (i.e. icon, single-instance and so on) to package & publish.


Hi there guys! New release! :Thmbsup:


Info + download page: Clipboard URL Saver v0.1.0


I'm doing it! :Thmbsup:

Awesome! Text-only for v0.1 --we can improve upon initial version to enable images :)

Give me some days as the public domain releases are re-activating, with daily releases now!



Hi there!


Yes! Is it text-only?

Hello guys, this thread is here to announce new releases @ our space you may otherwise miss.

We also serve other fellow forums in the internet software community hence the matching section, as this may be considered an active software-related service.


EDIT: DC releases announced at our section/board @

If I press PrnScr (Print screen), the screen should be captured and displayed in MS Paint.

Hello Deep!

Latest weekly release is based on your snack request:


Download page: Print-screen to Paint v0.1.0

Enjoy :Thmbsup:

Adding this change to next version/update  :up:

Just added a new "Hide close button" option (v0.1.1):



Please use it for a while.

If it's feature-complete and there are no bugs on the way, we can then promote it to version 1.0, officially :)

I have someone else working on it. So, you don't need to do it.

Thanks for advising!

I continue coding around. If you need anything, I'm just a message away :)

Super. Looks like a straightforward/quickie one; I'm happy to do it :)

I take program's GUI being simply two text boxes, to collect named pipe + TCP port:

i.e. from

I'm making it from scratch. Chances are an initial working version is done by the weekend.

Hello Zero3K,

I get you have a program using named pipes inside VirtualBox and you need to have messages forwarded to a given TCP port on the host.

Is that it?

(This thread is deprecated in favor of the new Public Domain weekly+ releases thread!)

OK, Just gave it a whirl and I have to say it seems to be working great!

Glad to hear you're enjoying it :-*

Only one slight niggle with it: Any chance you could make the _X_ on the main window minimize to tray rather than just closing it (I've now closed it twice by accident haha).

Roger that. Adding this change to next version/update  :up:

Thanks again

It is my passion and my pleasure to assist!


There seems to be a bug when you have the app set to start with the OS. When you reboot the PC and the app starts, it does indeed start, but it doesn't work. I get an popup error message saying Unhandled Exception has occured, and "Access to the path "C:\Windows\system32\SettingsData.txt" is denied. Even though I don't think it should be putting anything in the windows folder. The app itself is in a folder on the desktop.

Gave some coding love to this; there wasn't any file on "C:\Windows\system32\" involved!

Explanation being Windows simply passed the calling shell's environment to the program so current working directory needed to be corrected on autostart.

Please confirm to move forward with audio-playing check + scheduler options :up:

Hello guys, this thread is here to announce new topics @ our page.

Some may be more relevant than others, yet they're all related to our software/service/product hence the matching section :Thmbsup:

Feel free to make questions about them!

Like mouser noted (here), I am "a real person making a real unique post telling our members about a project you are involved with." :)


Hello, good day & many thanks to all of you -fine posters- for the input!

This brainstorming thread has a worthy purpose as we're going to have such a "pdCode" project made a reality!

Chances are this very year 2020 we can reach v0.1.0 with initial/useful functionality.

So, don't take my last post the wrong way.

Rest assured it is only taken lightheartedly!

We are simply aiming at becoming useful to those who support our ways. The internet world is large enough for everybody to express freely :)

If nothing more, it can be a way for our public domain releases to remain current over time by reaching the "valid platforms of the day" via truly-native executables coming from the same code base.

...Even one (1) happy user beyond that and it's a win!

Functions and objects would be modeled largely after Microsoft's dotnet framework technology.

Code: C# [Select]
  1. pdCode
  2.         version: 0.1.0
  3.         type: console
  4.         targets: net, java, server, web, android
  6. Program
  7.         name: "First test"
  8.         description: "Just checking the language's text mode."
  10. Main()
  11.         // Set message
  12.         messageText = "Hello world in pdCode!"
  14.         // Print one line
  15.         Console.WriteLine(messageText)
  17.         // End program
  18.         return 0

It would be dynamically typed, case-insensitive, adhering to the off-side rule (indent-based) and leaning to the verbose side when in doubt --yet aiming at being succinct.

Targets would be platform-based. Any intermediary programming language output working just as a means to generate the target platform's native executable format.

User would simply issue the command:

pdcode HelloWorld.pdc

To compile the program simultaneously into:

HelloWorld.exe ← net ← java
HelloWorld.apk ← android
HelloWorld.js ← node
HelloWorld.html ← web page with a javascript console interface

For GUI mode, it would mostly work with traditional widgets:

Code: C# [Select]
  1. pdCode
  2.         version: 0.1.0
  3.         type: gui
  4.         targets: net, gtk, java, android, web
  6. Program
  7.         name: "First GUI app"
  8.         description: "Minimal user interface test plus an event handler."
  9.         version: 0.1.0
  10.         copyright: "John Cody Doe"
  11.         license: CC0-1.0
  13. GUI
  14.         mainForm
  15.                 size: 277, 95
  16.                 text: "GUI test"
  17.                 startPosition: FormStartPosition.CenterScreen
  19.                 messageLabel
  20.                         size: 253, 23
  21.                         location: 12, 19
  22.                         text: "You must close me three (3) times!"
  23.                         font: "Arial", 11.25F, FontStyle.Bold
  25.                 closeButton
  26.                         size: 101, 33
  27.                         location: 88, 53
  28.                         text: "&Close"
  29.                         font: "Arial", 11.25F, FontStyle.Bold
  30.                         foreColor: Color.Red
  32. // Variable for holding tries
  33. closingCount = 0
  35. CloseButton_Click()
  36.         // Close by button
  37.         Close()
  39. MainForm_Closing(e)
  40.         // Rise closing count
  41.         closingCount++
  43.         if closingCount < 3
  44.                 // Advise user
  45.                 MessageBox.Show($"You have tried only {closingCount} times!", "Please try again")
  47.                 // Prevent closing
  48.                 e.Cancel = true
Perhaps the GUI types being inferred from object names can be deemed a bit odd, yet it adds to the overall readability.

Also, event names are signaled by coming after an underscore (_) in the handler function.

The idea is for pdCode to find the sweet spot or via media between intent-based and traditional language.

It can also become an intermediary step in some specific scenarios (more in a new post).
