Editorial Note: The tool referenced in this blog post is no longer available.
Yesterday on SEL we announced RKG Duck, a powerful tool which lets you run filters on the Windows clipboard. This can speed up routine tasks, or make difficult tasks possible. Because it operates inside the Windows copy buffer, it works across just-about-every Windows app. (Sorry Stephan -- the tool doesn't support the more enlightened.) We've included some sample filters for using RKG Duck to wrangle URLs and extract interesting strings from content. The real power is adding your own filters. In the spirit of open source, if folks come up with interesting filters they want to share, email us or post them in the comments below. Of course, we'll give you credit and a backlink for sharing. I think it'd be cool to have a public shared resource of useful little filters... Links:
