toclip(x [, missing:Code, format:Fmt, sep:C1, linesep:C2]), Code,
  Fmt, C1, C2 quoted strings or CHARACTER scalars

Keywords: character variables, output
toclip(x) is equivalent to CLIPBOARD <- x and puts a possibly multi-
lined CHARACTER representation of x in special variable CLIPBOARD.

When x is REAL, you can use keywords 'sep', 'missing', 'linesep', and
'format' that are permissible with paste(x,multiline:T,...).

In the Macintosh, Windows and Motif versions, toclip() allows easy
export of MacAnova data to another application such as a spreadsheet.
For example, if x is a 10 by 5 REAL matrix that you want to export to a
spreadsheet, after 'toclip(x)', you can select a 10 by 5 rectangle of
cells in the spreadsheet and select Paste in the Edit menu.  When the
target application has special requirements for representing MISSING or
field and line separators, you can use keywords to customize what gets
put on the Clipboard.

  toclip(x,missing:"NA") and toclip(x,missing:"-99") put x in CLIPBOARD
    with MISSING coded as NA and -99, respectively
  toclip(x,sep:",",format:".10f") puts x in CLIPBOARD with elements
    separated by commas and with 10 decimal places
  toclip(x,linesep:":",sep:",") puts x in CLIPBOARD with elements
    separated by commas and rows separated by colons.

toclip() is implemented as a pre-defined macro.
