Goldfish is a demonstration project demonstrating the use of a number of vbAccelerator controls
and code, all of which are compiled into the executable (with the exception of
SSubTmr.DLL - sorry!).
The self-extracting executable installs Goldfish and SSubTmr.DLL, provided you already have
VB5 runtime support installed.
The code also contains a first implementation of the forthcoming all VB RichEdit control.
Goldfish acts as a history for the windows clipboard. Whenever the contents of the clipboard change,
Goldfish makes a copy of the data in various formats. By default, it holds onto Text and RichText
formats, but it can be configured to hold other types too, including Internet Explorer's HTML format -
very useful for grabbing page fragments!
Because Goldfish stores a complete memory copy of each clipboard entry made, it allows you to
restore older clipboard entries in their entirety to the clipboard. And as it has its
own file format (the Goldfish Clipboard List, with the extension GCF) which can save multiple
clipboard entries to a single file, you can also build up source code snippet lists and so on
just by copying them to the clipboard. An edit toolbar and menu allows you to changing the order
of items, deleting unwanted entries and to change the name text which appears in the list.
