Thanks for reporting this. I think the new version will take care of this
automatically (assuming I understand what you mean by "times out" -- you mean
"hangs"? or reports an error?). In the new version, you can set the size of
the "chunks" that are put through the Windows function -- in other words,
CLIP.EXE now automatically processes a Clip of any size in pieces, looping
around to get another piece until the whole Clip is processed -- you won't ever
need to grab small pieces manually anymore. The default "chunksz=8192" bytes,
but you can change this in REG (my Win2K installation is set to 20,480, but XP
should be 8192 or lower). That still means that you can process a Clip of
300Kb or whatever at a single shot -- the changes are internal and invisible.
