The Windows clipboard holds data being temporarily copied/cut and pasted within programs running under the Microsoft Windows operating system. There are various sub-formats of it to handle different sorts of text, graphical, and other data. While this is usually just held in memory, sometimes it may be saved in files with a .clp extension.
.clp files begin with a 2-byte signature. Known signatures:
0x50 0xc3(Windows 3.1)
For .clp files:
- Clipboard Viewer / ClipBook Viewer - Included with Microsoft Windows prior to Vista.
- XnView - Can read graphical files.
