Cut, Copy and Paste with X

One of the things that I have learned to take for granted in the Win32 world is the cut, copy and paste hotkeys of ^X, ^C and ^V.

I use these keys all the time under Win32 to copy and paste information from one GUI into another GUI.

My question is, does X have a similiar standard?

Sometimes I find that some X apps support the ^C and ^V copy and paste (ie, Opera, StarOffice), but I cannot paste into another application. Is there some standard that I am missing, perhaps over cut, copy and paste hotkeys that I am missing?

NAME
hoz - file splitter that uses the hacha file format SYNOPSIS
hoz [-pvf] [-c size[K|M]] [-o outpath] inputfname ghoz DESCRIPTION
HOZ is a file splitter, which uses the same file format as the popular 'Hacha' program. OPTIONS
-c --cut cut (file->pieces) -p --paste paste (pieces->file) -v --verbose verbose output -f --force force overwrite of file when pasting -o --outpath specify an output directory -h --help print this help, then exit --version print hoz program version number, then exit USAGE
There are two basic operations: cut and paste. Cut will 'split' a file in pieces. The size of each piece is passed as an option. Each piece will have a numeric extension, starting with 0. So for instance if you 'cut' a file called 'foo.iso', the pieces will be named 'foo.iso.0', 'foo.iso.1' and so on. Paste will 'merge' these pieces and generate and exact copy of the original file. ghoz is the graphical version of hoz, which uses a GTK GUI interface. SEE ALSO
