NAME

       al_get_clipboard_text - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro.h>

              char *al_get_clipboard_text(ALLEGRO_DISPLAY *display)

DESCRIPTION

       This  function  returns  a pointer to a string, allocated with al_malloc(3alleg5) with the
       text contents of the clipboard if available.  If no text is  available  on  the  clipboard
       then  this  function returns NULL.  You must call al_free(3alleg5) on the returned pointer
       when you don't need it anymore.

       Beware that text on the clipboard on Windows may be in Windows format,  that  is,  it  may
       have carriage return newline combinations for the line endings instead of regular newlines
       for the line endings on Linux or OSX.
