       selection Specifies the selection atom.

       target	 Specifies the target atom.

       time	 Specifies the time.  You can pass either a timestamp or

       The function changes the owner and last-change time for the specified selection and has no effect if the specified time is earlier than the
       current last-change time of the specified selection or is later than the current X server time.	Otherwise, the last-change time is set to
       the specified time, with replaced by the current server time.  If the owner window is specified as then the owner of the selection becomes
       (that is, no owner).  Otherwise, the owner of the selection becomes the client executing the request.

       If the new owner (whether a client or is not the same as the current owner of the selection and the current owner is not the current owner
       is sent a event.  If the client that is the owner of a selection is later terminated (that is, its connection is closed) or if the owner
       window it has specified in the request is later destroyed, the owner of the selection automatically reverts to but the last-change time is
       not affected.  The selection atom is uninterpreted by the X server.  returns the owner window, which is reported in and events.	Selections

       o    If no owner for the specified selection exists, the X server generates a event to the requestor with property

       The arguments are passed on unchanged in either of the events.  There are two predefined selection atoms: PRIMARY and SECONDARY.

       can generate and errors.

       A value for an Atom argument does not name a defined Atom.

       A value for a Window argument does not name a defined Window.
