Cliptastic - Open Source Windows Clipboard Text History Utility

Cliptastic is a no-frills open source tool for Microsoft Windows that keeps a history of all the text you place in your clipboard. When you want to retrieve text that was previously in your clipboard, simply find it in Cliptastic and click on it. Cliptastic will place that text back into the clipboard for pasting. Why use Cliptastic instead of one of the four-billion other Windows clipboard utilities out there? Because Cliptastic is quick and dirty, the source code is available, and it's 100% free.

Visit the Cliptastic Project Page on Sourceforge to report bugs or get the source code. Cliptastic is written in Perl/TK, and can be run as a Perl script or a regular Windows executable. Download a Windows Install .EXE version below:
