XCUTSEL(1)						      General Commands Manual							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 com- mand 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 buffer 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 following: -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. SEE ALSO
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. AUTHOR

XCLIPBOARD(1)						      General Commands Manual						     XCLIPBOARD(1)

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. Buffers 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 displayed. 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, indenta- tion indicates hierarchical structure. The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.

/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 con- figuration file to use the clipboard are: *VT100.Translations: #override <Btn3Up>: select-end(CLIPBOARD) <Btn2Up>: insert-selection(PRIMARY,CLIPBOARD) <Btn2Down>: ignore () SEE ALSO
