       xclipboard - X clipboard client


       xclipboard [ -toolkitoption ... ] [ -w ] [ -nw ]


       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

       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.

               Displays the previous buffer.


       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.


       In order to specify resources, it is useful to know the hierarchy  of  the  widgets  which
       compose  xclipboard.  In the notation below, indentation indicates hierarchical structure.
       The widget class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.

       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 configuration file to use the clipboard are:

       *VT100.Translations: #override \
               <Btn3Up>:       select-end(CLIPBOARD) \n\
               <Btn2Up>:       insert-selection(PRIMARY,CLIPBOARD) \n\
               <Btn2Down>:     ignore ()

       and send it to the CLIPBOARD.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
