       XmClipboardStartCopy -- A clipboard function that sets up a storage and data structure

       #include <Xm/CutPaste.h>
       int XmClipboardStartCopy (display, window, clip_label,
	       timestamp, widget, callback, item_id)
	       Display * display;
	       Window  window;
	       XmString        clip_label;
	       Time    timestamp;
	       Widget  widget;
	       XmCutPasteProc  callback;
	       long    * item_id;

       XmClipboardStartCopy  sets  up  storage and data structures to receive clipboard data.  An
       application calls this function during a cut or copy operation.	The data item that  these
       structures receive then becomes the next data item in the clipboard.

       Copying a large piece of data to the clipboard can take a long time.  It is possible that,
       once the data is copied, no application will ever request that  data.  The  Motif  Toolkit
       provides  a  mechanism  so  that an application does not need to actually pass data to the
       clipboard until the data has been requested by some application.

       Instead, the application passes format and length information in  XmClipboardCopy  to  the
       clipboard functions, along with a widget ID and a callback function address that is passed
       in XmClipboardStartCopy. The widget ID is necessary for communications between  the  clip-
       board  functions  in the application that owns the data and the clipboard functions in the
       application that requests the data.

       The callback functions are responsible for  copying  the  actual  data  to  the	clipboard
       through	XmClipboardCopyByName.	The  callback function is also called if the data item is
       removed from the clipboard and the actual data is no longer needed.

       display	 Specifies a pointer to the Display structure that was	returned  in  a  previous
		 call to XOpenDisplay or XtDisplay.

       window	 Specifies  the  window ID of a widget that relates the application window to the
		 clipboard. The widget's window ID can be obtained through  XtWindow.	The  same
		 application  instance	should	pass  the same window ID to each of the clipboard
		 functions that it calls.

		 Specifies the label to be associated with the data item.  This argument is  used
		 to  identify  the data item, as in a clipboard viewer.  An example of a label is
		 the name of the application that places the data in the clipboard.

       timestamp Specifies the time of the event that triggered the copy.  A valid timestamp must
		 be supplied; it is not sufficient to use CurrentTime.

       widget	 Specifies the ID of the widget that receives messages requesting data previously
		 passed by name. This argument must be present in order to pass data by name. Any
		 valid	widget	ID  in	your application can be used for this purpose and all the
		 message handling is taken care of by the cut and paste functions.

       callback  Specifies the address of the callback function that is called when the clipboard
		 needs	data  that  was  originally  passed by name. This is also the callback to
		 receive the delete message for items that were originally passed by  name.  This
		 argument must be present in order to pass data by name.

       item_id	 Specifies the number assigned to this data item.  The application uses this num-
		 ber in calls to XmClipboardCopy, XmClipboardEndCopy, and XmClipboardCancelCopy.

       For more information on passing data by name, see XmClipboardCopy(3) and  XmClipboardCopy-

       The widget and callback arguments must be present in order to pass data by name. The call-
       back format is as follows:

       void (*callback) (widget, data_id, private, reason)
	       Widget  widget;
	       long    *data_id;
	       long    *private;
	       int     *reason;

       widget	 Specifies the ID of the widget passed to this function.

       data_id	 Specifies the identifying number returned by XmClipboardCopy,	which  identifies
		 the pass-by-name data.

       private	 Specifies the private information passed to XmClipboardCopy.

       reason	 Specifies  the reason. XmCR_CLIPBOARD_DATA_DELETE or XmCR_CLIPBOARD_DATA_REQUEST
		 are the possible values.

		 The function was successful.

		 The function failed because the clipboard was locked by another application. The
		 application  can  continue  to  call the function again with the same parameters
		 until the lock goes away. This gives the application the opportunity to  ask  if
		 the user wants to keep trying or to give up on the operation.
