gClipColl 0.3

gClipColl provides a drag-and-drop repository for text snippets.
gClipColl software provides a drag-and-drop repository for text snippets.

Any text dragged to it is stored in a list for dragging to another application. All snippets are saved to a file.

It uses Gtkmm, as I hate working in pure C. It's my first Gtkmm program, so don't expect much.

Just drag text to/from the window to store it for now, press delete to remove an entry, click on an entry to rename it (actual clip text is unchanged by this). Things I need to work on are:

- File store to make clip collections persistent (at present they are lost when quiting gclipcol)
- Global keyboard shortcuts
- Various drag and drop issues
- Better list entry string generation: truncate to window width, ensure uniqueness etc.
- Bug: pressing delete while editing a clip name deletes the current item

It's only a few lines of code, I'm impressed with how simple.
