I have added a ClipFind program to the ClipLog program, as follows:
Program name: ClipLog and ClipFind

CLipLog is a simple windows program
that watches the Windows ClipBoard for any text COPY command.
Any 'COPY text' action will trigger ClipLog,
to LOG the 'CopiedText' into a disk file (yyyymmdd.txt).
ClipLog also time_stamps each 'CopiedText' entry.
It ceates a new 'yyyymmdd.txt' file for each day.
ClipLog is portable freeware, no changes are made
to your computer. Simply create a new Folder,
perhaps named "C:\CLipLog". And copy the ClipLog.zip
file into it. UnZip the file.
Now there should be 5 files in the CLipLog Folder,
ClipLog_zip.zip, ClipLog.exe, ClipLog.bas, ClipLog.ico, ClipFind.
Newly created Log files will also reside in this same Folder.
ClipLog has four buttons,
1) [Send ClipLogWindow to TaskTray] makes ClipLog
run invisible, except for a visible Icon in the TaskTray.
You can make ClipLog visible again, by doubleClicking
on its TaskTray Icon.
2) [Find ] startup the ClipLog’s Search Program, Clipfind.
3) [Help] Dislpays ClipLog/ClipFind Help DOCs in Browser.
4) [Exit Program] .
You might want to created a CLipLog.lnk (shortcut).
And put it into your StartUp Folder. Perhaps here:
"C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup".
Then ClipLog will be started automatically, at each system startup.
ClipFind is a search program for your ClipLog yyyymmdd.txt files.
Finds text in all files in current or selected directory.
The default search directory is also where ClipFind.exe is located.
Every word in a ClipFind Result window is a link! Activate the link
(a) by clicking the beginning of the word or
(b) pressing F1 or
(c) Enter with the cursor at the word beginning.
(1) There is no limit on what you can search for.
(2) Every search is exhaustive producing a hit list of search results.
(3) Everything in THIS 'ClipFind Result display page' is a link to other
file content. No need to mark links, since every word is a link!
==Search starts with "Enter" key in search text box or with "Find It" button.
==Keyboard arrows navigate search results; "Space" selects item and "Enter" displays item.
==Result items can be selected with key or mouse doubleclick and displayed.
Your browser is launched to display .html result files.
=="Escape" exits result display and exits program.
=="Tab" switches focus between search text box and search results list.
Search text examples:
" mod " finds fewer hits than "mod".
" hex" finds fewer hits than "hex".
Using ClipLog/Find as PIM :
Its easy to find URLs, by searching for “http or www”.
For other things, like Quotes, I imbed the word “quote” in the COPY command,
or make a separate, immediate COPY with just the word “quote”.
I use the same method for other types of info, such as “phone”,
“paid”, “appt" for appointment”, “wishlist”, “todo”, "chapter".
As you can probably see, This way ClipLog/ClipFind is also a Personal information manager (PIM).
