Copying command prompt output directly to the Windows clipboard

How often have you wanted to copy the output of a Windows command from the command prompt, but had to go thought the process of marking and copying the text first? 

Redirecting the command and it’s output is as easy as this:

ipconfig /all | clip

will pipe the results of ipconfig into the clipboard, which can then be pasted into notepad with a CTRL-V.  How convienent is that!  This works in Windows 2003 and higher (sorry, no Windows XP).
