Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

CopyPaste increases the functionality of the Mac text/picture Cut / Copy / Paste commands by adding:

Note: Despite its name, this program does not add Copy nor Paste functions for actual files, like in Mac OS X or Windows.

Download #1 contains CopyPaste 4.5.2, the latest version. It was freely distributed by the vendor and comes pre-registered. The versions of the remaining downloads are older and can be deduced from their file names.

@WhosIt.There
Thanks to your contribution of version 4.5, I came across the original website URL of the developer (it was in a text file with v4.5), and started digging. Now I can personally confirm the latest version is 4.5.2, and was freely distributed by the vendor and comes pre-registered. So thanks!

@Jatoba: version 4.4.2 can be found on the DVD at http://macintoshgarden.org/apps/mwdvd102 in System-Tools/Tools for Mac-OS 8.x/Utilities

I've added version 4.5 from the MacFormat cover CD (Sept 2002). The original was just a folder on the CD, so I had to make into an archive using StuffIt Deluxe 3.5.

Good grief, what a hassle!!
The original upload didn't copy the actual CopyPaste extension because it has a diamond symbol in the filename. I had to make a disc image of the entire CD (because SheepShaver / Basilisk won't mount real CDs!), then mount the disc image in Sheepshaver (after copying it from the shared folder onto the emulated hard drive), finally make a .sit file of the CopyPaste folder. Tired

macOS X does do copy-paste of files in the Finder ... now, but I don't remember which version added the feature.

CopyPaste never had the feature as far as I recall.

According to my DiskTracker database of MacFormat cover disks / discs, I may have these versions that aren't on here:

  • CopyPaste 3.0.1
  • CopyPaste 3.0.1
  • CopyPaste 3.2.1
  • CopyPaste 3.3.1
  • CopyPaste 3.3.4
  • CopyPaste 4.0 SE
  • CopyPaste 4.0.2
  • CopyPaste 4.0.5 / CopyPaste 4.0.5 SE
  • CopyPaste 4.1 / CopyPaste 4.1 SE
  • CopyPaste 4.2.1
  • CopyPaste 4.2.2
  • CopyPaste 4.2.3 SE
  • CopyPaste 4.3
  • CopyPaste 4.4
  • CopyPaste 4.5

plus (if it's the same program)

  • CopyPaste X 1.3
  • CopyPaste X 1.6.1

If they're all really wanted, I have to dig out any of the disks/discs that I have.

Thanks! Btw, apparently there's also version 4.4.2 out there, but I have been unable to find it thus far.

For anyone interested, to register, rename the extension "◊CopyPaste 4.4.1" to "◊CopyPaste-4.4.1" (meaning, replace space with a dash).

I must say, though, I'm a bit disappointed over this program. Sad I was hoping it would provide Copy+Paste functionality to copy files from a directory and paste them into another, much like in Windows, but that doesn't seem to be the case, from what I tried. Is there any app that does that for OS 9 and earlier? (Even for OS X would be interesting.)

The first upload was version 3.3 - I've re-uploaded it with the corrected filename and added some other versions from your link.

Download no. 1 contains which version?

Seeing the second download is for version 4.2, here's a link containing version 4.4.1, for those interested: http://mc68000.org/downloads/utilities/

Actually my G5 ran Leopard, so I couldn't technically run them on it. However, using the unarchiver I could browse and open the various old mac archives. Windows doesn't have any similar software and though it can emulate stuffit, presumable due to it being budget end hardware, it does so VERRY slowly. It's just too inconvenient at the moment. I wish I could upload more files from that site but I guess that will have to come later.

I can't test the files. I'm currently using a cheap pc to upload.

Basilisk II, SheepShaver, Mini vMac (even PearPC) all make good test "Macs" when running from a cheap pc box.

I use these when I'm not near, or am too lazy to boot up the G3 Wink

I'd trade the fastest Windows pc to fix my G5.

That's not a fair swap ... the G5 is much much better than any Windoze PC. Smile

Unfortunately my PowerMac G5 is experiencing......"downtime" currently, which means I can't test the files. I'm currently using a cheap pc to upload. Hopefully I'll be able to get a new motherboard soon, then I can help again. I'd trade the fastest Windows pc to fix my G5.

@3371-Alpha: Thanks for replacing the v4.2 .hqx with a good copy.

Curiously what's up there now is not an hqx file, its actually just a plain StuffIt .sit with a ".hqx" tacked onto the end of the file name. - No matter, StuffIt knows what to do with it and it unpacks fine.

The .hqx header and a portion of the code is missing from the 4.2 upload. It is damaged beyond fixing and needs replacing with a good copy.
