       XSelectionEvent - SelectionNotify event structure

       The structure for SelectionNotify events	contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* SelectionNotify */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window requestor;
	       Atom selection;
	       Atom target;
	       Atom property;  /* atom or None */
	       Time time;
       } XSelectionEvent;

       When you	receive	this event, the	structure members are set as follows.

       The  type  member  is set to the	event type constant name that uniquely
       identifies it.  For example, when the X server reports a	GraphicsExpose
       event  to a client application, it sends	an XGraphicsExposeEvent	struc-
       ture with the type member set to	GraphicsExpose.	 The display member is
       set  to a pointer to the	display	the event was read on.	The send_event
       member is set to	True if	the event came from a SendEvent	 protocol  re-
       quest.  The serial member is set	from the serial	number reported	in the
       protocol	but expanded from the 16-bit least-significant bits to a  full
       32-bit value.  The window member	is set to the window that is most use-
       ful to toolkit dispatchers.

       The requestor member is set to the window associated with the requestor
       of  the	selection.  The	selection member is set	to the atom that indi-
       cates the selection.  For example, PRIMARY is used for the primary  se-
       lection.	  The target member is set to the atom that indicates the con-
       verted type.  For example, PIXMAP is used for a pixmap.	 The  property
       member  is set to the atom that indicates which property	the result was
       stored on.  If the conversion failed, the property  member  is  set  to
       None.  The time member is set to	the time the conversion	took place and
       can be a	timestamp or CurrentTime.
