[R] Importing data from clipboard on Mac OSX

Dear R users,

I am trying to get data from the clipboard into R on MacOSX. I tried  
the following, but got an error message:

Error in file(file, "r") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message:
unable to contact X11 display

Obviously, I'm not running R using X11. I'm wondering, can I import  
data from the clipboard on MacosX?

Thanks in advance,

Rense Nieuwenhuis
