Hello HTG, long time reader first time writer here :P
I use the copy-paste functions (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V) all the time, but just recently started to wonder how exactly do they work. HTG seemed like a good place to ask this kind of thing. What I wonder is if it is application specific (i.e if each application needs to have its own copy paste function and a buffer to store the copied data) or if it is the operating system that handles it and if so where is the copied data stored?
Thanks in advance
