Description

Read the contents of the system clipboard into a character vector.

Usage

read_clip(allow_non_interactive = Sys.getenv("CLIPR_ALLOW",
  interactive()))

Arguments

allow_non_interactive

By default, clipr will throw an error if run in a non-interactive session. Set the environment variable CLIPR_ALLOW=TRUE in order to override this behavior.

Value

A character vector with the contents of the clipboard. If the system clipboard is empty, returns NULL

Note

read_clip() will not try to guess at how to parse copied text. If you are copying tabular data, it is suggested that you use read_clip_tbl().
