[R] write to clipboard under Linux

Dear all,
I am trying to use the clipboard when writing a table. Typing:

write.table(object, file="clipboard")

leads to the message:

Fehler in file(file, ifelse(append, "a", "w")) :

        'mode' für die Zwischenablage muss unter Unix 'r' sein

My interpretation is that I am not allowed to write into the clipboard from a program called from R. Is there a way to change this behaviour?

                       from such a trifling investment of fact.
