DESCRIPTION

       Tk_OwnSelection  arranges  for tkwin to become the new owner of the selection specified by
       the atom selection.  After this call completes, future requests for the selection will  be
       directed  to  handlers created for tkwin using Tk_CreateSelHandler.  When tkwin eventually
       loses the selection ownership, proc will be invoked so that the window can clean itself up
       (e.g.  by unhighlighting the selection).  Proc should have arguments and result that match
       the type Tk_LostSelProc:
              typedef void Tk_LostSelProc(ClientData clientData);
       The clientData  parameter  to  proc  is  a  copy  of  the  clientData  argument  given  to
       Tk_OwnSelection,  and  is  usually  a  pointer to a data structure containing application-
       specific information about tkwin.
