That is a bit vague. When discussing user interface behavior, it would
make sense to be more explicit about keystrokes. It's not clear here
that you aware that the Mac (which did start delivering this GUI
pizzazz long before MS-Windows was even halfway stable) uses cmd-C and
cmd-V as the to- and from-clipboard key operations, rather than crtl-C

Brings up two hits on my machine one for connections and one for
TkCommands. The first has a section on functions to access the
Clipboard from R. The second help page should appear if you have
tcltk loaded, although I don't at the moment so I cannot test that.
?TkCommands # probably
There is a specific help list for Mac questions and a lot of the
really knowledgeable people read it more regularly than r-help.
