I'm looking for a way to monitor the windows clipboard data for changes, then do something to the freshly copied data. I have the win32-clipboard library, and I could hack together something with a persistent loop, but this sounds like it would be rough on processing overhead. While looking around for alternatives, I found the Win32API function call to SetClipboardViewer, but with only a month of Ruby under my belt and no C, it all looks a little byzantine to me. Anyone have suggestions for a different implementation, or a few good resources for a newbie to the Win32API module? I'd appreciate any suggestions you could offer.
