Python - Locate and Delete Clipboard String From .txt File List

I would like a fast Python program (using pyperclip?) to:

1) Get a string from the user's clipboard.

Examples:

B007T40EZG

2018-09-17-004

2) Delete that clipboard string from a .txt file list on my computer. This list may have up to 30,000 strings in a column.

Example:

2009-01-06-126

B000001L7B

2018-03-28-011

B007T40EZG

2018-09-17-004

2021-08-29-006

B000FDECH4

2015-09-04-013

2015-02-15-014

3) If the clipboard string is:

a.) found and deleted from the .txt file list, save "Deleted" to the clipboard.

b.) not found in the .txt file list, save "NotFound" to the clipboard.

4) Close the py shell window and end the program when completed.

5) The file name (example: filepath = '/tmp/[login to view URL]') should be at the beginning of the code for easy user access.

6) Place a comment (#) explanation of the project (from 1 - 4 above), and the project completion date at the top of the finished code for future user reference.

Will consider reasonable offers from experienced and honest providers that can communicate in English. Successful completion may lead to future projects...

Thanks for your interest!!
