Read lines of text from clipboard

If you copy lines of text to the clipboard, like from a text editor, and then read them with REBOL, they come in as a string. I would like to get my hands on each individual line so I can do some processing on each line, and then write the lines back into the clipboard. I am wondering if that can be done. The best I can think of so far is to parse them on the linefeed, but that seems not to work. Thank you.
