This directory contains sample code. The largest sample, of course, is the pbtool script in the bin directory, which started out as an example, but outgrew its beginnings. The examples currently available are: README This is the file you are currently looking at. droplet This is the source for an Apple Script droplet which passes the full path names of any files dropped on it to a Perl script. To make this into an Apple Script application bundle, open the Script Editor (in /Applications/AppleScript until OS 10.10 Yosemite, where it became /Applications/Utilities/Script Editor). Then run eg/droplet onto the clipboard by (e.g.) $ pbcopy <eg/droplet Then paste the source into the Script Editor and save it as an application bundle. The Mac::Pasteboard::Droplet documentation gives the details on how to inject your Perl script into the application bundle. save_image This script saves an image on the system clipboard to a file. The file name may be given on the command line; it defaults to 'clipboard'. If there is a file name extension associated with the image's flavor, that extension is tacked onto the end of the file name. For example, if the clipboard contains flavor 'com.apple.pict' and this script is run, the output file will be 'clipboard.pict' unless the user specifies otherwise. If there is more than one image on the pasteboard, all will be dumped. If there is no image on the pasteboard, the script dies with a semi-appropriate message.
