Put a string on the pasteboard (NSString->Random)
Here's a category for easily putting a string on the paste|clipboard:
@implementation NSString (PasteboardGoodies)

- (void) sendToPasteboard
        [[NSPasteboard generalPasteboard] 
            declareTypes: [NSArray arrayWithObject: NSStringPboardType]
        [[NSPasteboard generalPasteboard]
            setString: self
            forType: NSStringPboardType];
} // sendToPasteboard

@end // PasteboardGoodies
