Clipboard (computing)

The clipboard is a buffer that some operating systems provide for short-term storage and transfer within and between application programs. The clipboard is temporary and unnamed, its contents reside in the computer's RAM; the clipboard is sometimes called the paste buffer. An operating system that supports a clipboard provides an application programming interface by which programs can specify cut and paste operations, it is left to the program to define methods for the user to command these operations, which may include keybindings and menu selections. When an element is copied or cut, the clipboard must store enough information to enable a sensible result no matter where the element is pasted. Application programs may extend the clipboard functions. A clipboard manager may give the user additional control over the clipboard. Specific clipboard semantics vary among operating systems, can vary between versions of the same system, can sometimes be changed by programs and by user preferences. Windows and macOS support a single clipboard transaction.

Each cut or copy overwrites the previous contents. Paste operations copy the contents, leaving the contents available in the clipboard for further pasting; the pointing device gesture of drag and drop may let a user move information within and between applications, independent of the clipboard. Clipboards as buffers for small text snippets were first used by Pentti Kanerva when he used it to store deleted texts in order to restore them. Since one could delete a text in one place and restore it in another, the term "delete" wasn't what one would expect in this case. Larry Tesler renamed this in 1973 as cut and paste and coined the term "clipboard" for this buffer, since these techniques need a clipboard for temporary saving the copied or cut data. Applications communicate through the clipboard by providing either serialized representations of an object, or a promise. In some circumstances the transfer of certain common data formats may be achieved opaquely through the use of an abstract factory, for example Mac OS X uses a class called NSImage to provide access to image data stored on the clipboard, though the actual format of the image data backing the object is hidden.

The sending and receiving application negotiate the formats which can be transferred in between them, oftentimes with the active GUI widget responsible for providing acceptable type transformations. The pasteboard allows for transfer of common items such as URLs, images, attributed strings, sounds; the operating system and GUI toolkit may provide some common conversions, for example converting from rich text to plain text and vice versa. Various type identifiers for data transfer are supported by modern operating systems, which may automatically provide acceptable mappings between type systems, such as between MIME and Uniform Type Identifier. Clipboard hijacking is an exploit in which a person's clipboard's content is replaced by malicious data, such as a link to a malicious web site. While some security-holes were patched, JavaScript can still be used to modify clipboard content via an attack dubbed'pastejacking'. Dylan Ayrey who developed the attack set up a website that demonstrates how this exploit can be used to trick a user into running commands they didn't want to run.

There have been exploits. In early 2013 researchers exposed risks stemming from Android-based password managers and documented how passwords in 21 of the most popular of these apps could be accessed by any other app on an Android device including those with low-level privileges. Joe Siegrist notes that this is an "OS-level issue that impacts everything running on Android". Clipboard manager extensions add functionality to the integrated clipboard functions of an operating system, they are applications. On platforms such as linux where that use multiple incompatible GUI toolkits, clipboard managers are used to transfer data between applications using different such frameworks; when a clipboard manager provides multiple cut and paste transactions, the clipboard is treated as a stack or scrap book, with new cuts and copies being placed on a list of recent transactions. The standard paste operation copies the most recent transaction, while specialized pastes provide access to the other stored transactions.

These managers also provide a window that displays the transaction history and allows the user to select earlier copies, edit them, change their format and search amongst them. Since most operating systems do not save the clipboard contents to any persistent storage – when a user logs out or reboots the system the clipboard contents are deleted – an added functionality is to save the clipboard persistently. Another example is making the local clipboard work with online applications by saving the clipboard data to the online location upon a copy or cut event, making this data available to online applications for pasting. Clipboard managers can serve as tools to overcome the limitation of software not supporting copying and pasting; the clipboard in Microsoft Windows holds one item in multiple available formats. Every item has at least one clipboard format, but can have different types of format of the same data; the three different types of possible formats are: standard formats, registered formats private formats for internal useUp to and including Windows XP the clipboard could be accessed via the ClipBook Viewer application.

Esso Cup

The Esso Cup is the Canadian national women's under-18 ice hockey club championship, sponsored by Esso. It is an annual event, sanctioned by Hockey Canada; the current champions are the St. Albert Slash, who won the 2019 Esso Cup in Ontario; the forerunner to the Esso Cup was the Esso Women's Hockey Nationals, the Canadian senior women's championship from 1982 to 2008. With the evolution of the Nationals into a professional tournament, Hockey Canada elected to discontinue it in 2008 and replace it with a national female midget championship known as the Esso Cup; the inaugural Esso Cup was played in April 2009 in Alberta. The Westman Wildcats from Souris, Manitoba were the first gold medalists; the St. Albert Slash of Alberta are the only team to win the championship three times; the Esso Cup follows Hockey Canada's standard six-team national championship format. Branch champions compete in regional playoffs. In years when not all regions have participated in the Esso Cup, another region has been allowed to send a second team to keep the field at six teams.

The Esso Cup uses the IIHF points system for the round robin, which awards three points for a win in regulation time. If the game is decided in overtime or a shootout, the winning team receives two points and the losing team receives one. No points are awarded for losing a game in regulation time. After the round robin is complete, the top four teams qualify for the playoff round; each year's gold medal game is televised nationally on TSN and RDS. All other tournament games are streamed live on Hockey Canada's website; as of 2018-19 season Note: The Quebec region has not participated every year. In such years, a second team from another region has qualified in their place.
