       XSelectionRequestEvent -	SelectionRequest event structure

       The structure for SelectionRequest events contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* SelectionRequest */
	       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 owner;
	       Window requestor;
	       Atom selection;
	       Atom target;
	       Atom property;
	       Time time;
       } XSelectionRequestEvent;

       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 owner member	is set to the window that was specified	by the current
       owner in	its XSetSelectionOwner call.  The requestor member is set to
       the window requesting the selection.  The selection member is set to
       the atom	that names the selection.  For example,	PRIMARY	is used	to in-
       dicate the primary selection.  The target member	is set to the atom
       that indicates the type the selection is	desired	in.  The property mem-
       ber can be a property name or None.  The	time member is set to the
       timestamp or CurrentTime	value from the ConvertSelection	request.
