    I need to be able to read text that has been selected in another
    application under windows. Using $clipboard =
    Gtk::Clipboard.get('PRIMARY') works fantastically well under Linux, but
    I'd like my application to work on both Windows and Linux. I noticed in
    the documentation that the afforementioned only works with X and that it
    is completely ineffective under win32, but there are no workarounds
    suggested...

    Does anyone have one? Is this just completely impossible to do in
    Windows?
