XCUTSEL(1)									       XCUTSEL(1)

NAME
       xcutsel - interchange between cut buffer and selection

SYNOPSIS
       xcutsel [ -toolkitoption ...] [-selection selection] [-cutbuffer number]

DESCRIPTION
       The  xcutsel program is used to copy the current selection into a cut buffer and to make a
       selection that contains the current contents of the cut	buffer.   It  acts  as	a  bridge
       between applications that don't support selections and those that do.

       By  default,  xcutsel will use the selection named PRIMARY and the cut buffer CUT_BUFFER0.
       Either or both of these can be overridden by command line arguments or by resources.

       An xcutsel window has the following buttons:

	   quit
	       When this button is pressed, xcutsel exits.  Any selections held  by  xcutsel  are
	       automatically released.

	   copy PRIMARY to 0
	       When  this  button  is  pressed, xcutsel copies the current selection into the cut
	       buffer.

	   copy 0 to PRIMARY
	       When this button is pressed, xcutsel converts the current contents of the cut buf-
	       fer into the selection.

       The  button labels reflect the selection and cutbuffer selected by command line options or
       through the resource database.

       When the ``copy 0 to PRIMARY'' button is activated, the button  will  remain  inverted  as
       long  as  xcutsel  remains  the	owner  of the selection.  This serves to remind you which
       client owns the current selection.  Note that the value of the selection remains constant;
       if  the	cutbuffer is changed, you must again activate the copy button to retrieve the new
       value when desired.

OPTIONS
       Xcutsel accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options as well as the  follow-
       ing:

       -selection name
	       This  option  specifies the name of the selection to use.  The default is PRIMARY.
	       The only supported abbreviations for this option  are  ``-select'',  ``-sel''  and
	       ``-s'', as the standard toolkit option ``-selectionTimeout'' has a similar name.

       -cutbuffer number
	       This option specifies the cut buffer to use.  The default is cut buffer 0.

X DEFAULTS
       This program accepts all of the standard X Toolkit resource names and classes as well as:

       selection (class Selection)
	       This resource specifies the name of the selection to use.  The default is PRIMARY.

       cutBuffer (class CutBuffer)
	       This resource specifies the number of the cut buffer to use.  The default is 0.

WIDGET NAMES
       The  following instance names may be used when user configuration of the labels in them is
       desired:

       sel-cut (class Command)
	       This is the ``copy SELECTION to BUFFER'' button.

       cut-sel (class Command)
	       This is the ``copy BUFFER to SELECTION'' button.

       quit (class Command)
	       This is the ``quit'' button.

       X(7), xclipboard(1), xterm(1), text widget documentation, individual client  documentation
       for how to make a selection.

BUGS
       There  is no way to change the name of the selection or the number of the cut buffer while
       the program is running.
