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 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.

           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 ()

   make a selection and send it to the CLIPBOARD.


   DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

           to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
           resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
