Project Swing components, however, use the system clipboard for copy and paste, and most tools on the desktop, apart from the Netscape browser, do not use the clipboard. We do not claim this will work for all systems and that it will not break other programs. For those of you wishing a more technical reason as to the problem: Java uses the system clipboard for all platforms and under Windows and Mac OS all other application use the same clipboard buffer.A workaround to this limitation is to map a key or mouse button to access the system clipboard as follows: *VT100. This is the CLIPBOARD selection under X-windows (as defined by Sun). The problem is getting the items to pass between these two bufferes.Highlight the text you wish to copy and then type Control-C (or use the copy button on the keyboard if you keyboard has one).Then use Control-V to paste this text into Star View.For personal installations, the program will ask you if you wish to update it when updates are available and, if allowed to, will reinstall all files as needed and restart the program.For site installations the program will inform you that there is an update and ask you to have your system administrator update starview by running the program.Star View's main functions are: This new Java-version of Star View fully replaces the previous versions of Star View and XStar View.
