Copy to Clipboard

I have seen a couple of sites, that are driven by php, using a link to copy code samples to the clipboard.  I am wondering how I can add this to a page that I am building.  I am not sure if it is a PHP or javascript function.

Thanks,
John

Surely it's javascript or some other client-side thing; I don't see how server-side PHP could interact in any way with the client's clipboard.

Looks like it's some JavaScript, and in IE only.

<script language="JavaScript">
function cbwrite (s) { window.clipboardData.setData("Text", s); }
</script>
<input id="txt" type="text"><input type="button" onClick="cbwrite(txt.value);" value="copy to clipboard">
