NAME
       xclipboard - X clipboard client

SYNOPSIS
       xclipboard [ -toolkitoption ... ] [ -w ] [ -nw ]

DESCRIPTION
       The xclipboard program is used to collect and display text selections that are sent to the
       CLIPBOARD by other clients.  It is typically used to save CLIPBOARD selections  for  later
       use.   It  stores  each	CLIPBOARD  selection  as  a separate string, each of which can be
       selected.  Each time CLIPBOARD is asserted by another  application,  xclipboard	transfers
       the  contents  of that selection to a new buffer and displays it in the text window.  Buf-
       fers are never automatically deleted, so you'll want to use the delete button to  get  rid
       of useless items.

       Since xclipboard uses a Text Widget to display the contents of the clipboard, text sent to
       the CLIPBOARD may be re-selected for use in other applications.	xclipboard also  responds
       to  requests for the CLIPBOARD selection from other clients by sending the entire contents
       of the currently displayed buffer.

       An xclipboard window has the following buttons across the top:

       quit    When this button is pressed, xclipboard exits.

       delete  When this button is pressed, the current buffer is deleted and the next	one  dis-
	       played.

       new     Creates	a  new	buffer	with no contents.  Useful in constructing a new CLIPBOARD
	       selection by hand.

       save    Displays a File Save dialog box.  Pressing the Accept button saves  the	currently
	       displayed buffer to the file specified in the text field.

       next    Displays the next buffer in the list.

       previous
	       Displays the previous buffer.

OPTIONS
       The  xclipboard program accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options as well
       as the following:

       -w      This option indicates that lines of text that are too long to be displayed on  one
	       line in the clipboard should wrap around to the following lines.

       -nw     This option indicates that long lines of text should not wrap around.  This is the
	       default behavior.

WIDGETS
       In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy  of  the  widgets  which
       compose	xclipboard.  In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure.
       The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.

SENDING/RETRIEVING CLIPBOARD CONTENTS
       Text is copied to the clipboard whenever a  client  asserts  ownership  of  the	CLIPBOARD
       selection.   Text  is copied from the clipboard whenever a client requests the contents of
       the CLIPBOARD selection.  Examples of event bindings that a user may wish to include in	a
       resource configuration file to use the clipboard are:

       *VT100.Translations: #override \
	    <Btn3Up>:		     select-end(CLIPBOARD) \n\
	    <Btn2Up>:		     insert-selection(PRIMARY,CLIPBOARD) \n\
	    <Btn2Down>: 	     ignore ()
