Clip Tool

Clip Tool is a simple command line utility for copying text to the clipboard. When run without any command line options, by default Clip Tool copies the current directory path to the clipboard. This can be very useful when working with multiple command prompts.

You can copy the full path to a file by passing the filename as the first argument.

Clip Tool can also be used to copy the output of any console mode applications and shell commands. For example: dir *.txt | ct.exe will execute the directory listing command and copy the output to the clipboard.

You can download ct.exe from here.
