using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;

// The 'text' parameter will contain the text from the:
//   - Current Clipboard when run by HotKey
//   - History Item when run from the History Menu
// The returned string will be:
//   - Placed directly on the Clipboard when run as a Macro
//   - Ignored by ClipboardFusion if it is 'null'
//   - Passed along to the next action in a Trigger (null changed to an empty string)
public static class ClipboardFusionHelper
	public static string ProcessText(string text)
        // Split the text into an array containing each line
		string[] lines = text.Split(Environment.NewLine.ToCharArray(), StringSplitOptions.RemoveEmptyEntries);
		// Add the copied text to the output
		string output = text;
		// Loop through the lines and add the character counts to the output for each line
		int i = 0;
		foreach (string line in lines)
            output = output + Environment.NewLine + "Line " + i.ToString() + ": " + line.Length.ToString();
		// Return the output
		return output;
