This is just out of curiosity.
I'm wondering how copying and pasting of images in MacOS X works.
I'm assuming that Cocoa applications put PDF data into the scrap when
copying image data.
And Carbon applications put PICT data into the scrap.
What happens when a Carbon application wants to paste an image copied
from a Cocoa application? Or vice versa?
Does this just not work? That would seem like a bad idea.
Or does the scrap manager somehow convert between these two formats?
I'm on an older Mac, so I'm unable to verify what actually happens.
And what about ...
