View list of data type meanings


This pastes the clipboard contents to everybody (who you are not ignoring).

The clipboard must contain text - if it does the entire contents will be pasted to that everybody (as an "everybody" chat message, so it will work with other clients), and echoed on your output window as well.

You could use that to exchange aliases, triggers, messages from the screen, and so on.

Note: Available in version 3.37 onwards.
