XCLIPBOARD(1)							 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 CLIP-
       BOARD  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.

SENDING/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 configura-
       tion file to use	the clipboard are:

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

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