In AppleScript, it is possible to get the system clipboard with something like the following:
set s to the clipboard as text
If you run this in Script Editor with “clip” on the clipboard, you should see this:
app = Application('System Events'); app.includeStandardAdditions = true; s = app.theClipboard();
You can also use:
app = Application.currentApplication(); app.includeStandardAdditions = true; s = app.theClipboard();
