How to Apply the write_clip Function in R (Example Code)

In this tutorial, I’ll explain how to apply the write_clip function to copy data to the clipboard in R programming.

Creation of Example Data

data(iris)                      # Load iris data set
my_df <- head(iris)             # New data with head of iris
my_df                           # Print head of iris
#   Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width Species
# 1          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 2          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 3          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2  setosa
# 4          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2  setosa
# 5          5.0         3.6          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 6          5.4         3.9          1.7         0.4  setosa

Example: Using the write_clip() Function to Copy a Data Frame to the Clipboard

clipr::write_clip(my_df)        # Copying head of iris data frame to clipboard

Now, you may paste the data using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + v.

# Sepal.Length	Sepal.Width	Petal.Length	Petal.Width	Species
# 5.1	3.5	1.4	0.2	setosa
# 4.9	3	1.4	0.2	setosa
# 4.7	3.2	1.3	0.2	setosa
# 4.6	3.1	1.5	0.2	setosa
# 5	3.6	1.4	0.2	setosa
# 5.4	3.9	1.7	0.4	setosa
