AUTOCUTSEL(1)		    General Commands Manual		 AUTOCUTSEL(1)

       autocutsel - keep the X clipboard and the cutbuffer in sync

       autocutsel [-selection selection_name] [-cutbuffer number] [-debug]
       [-verbose] [-fork] [-pause milliseconds]	[-buttonup]

       This manual page	documents briefly the autocutsel command.

       This manual page	was written for	the Debian distribution	because	the
       original	program	does not have a	manual page.

       autocutsel tracks changes in the	server's cutbuffer and clipboard se-
       lection.	 When the clipboard is changed,	it updates the cutbuffer.
       When the	cutbuffer is changed, it owns the clipboard selection.	The
       cutbuffer and clipboard selection are always synchronized.  Since the
       VNC client synchronizes the Windows' clipboard and the server's cut-
       buffer, all three "clipboards" are always kept synchronized.  When you
       copy some text in Windows, the cutbuffer	and the	clipboard selection
       are updated.  When you copy text	on the server using either the cut-
       buffer or the clipboard selection, the Windows's	clipboard is always

       -selection, -select, -sel, -s {CLIPBOARD|PRIMARY}
	      Specify which selection to use.  Default is CLIPBOARD.

       -cutbuffer <number>
	      (Details of this parameter unknown.)

       -debug, -d
	      Run with debugging mode.

       -verbose, -v
	      Be more verbose.	Reports	the version and	announces synchroniza-

       -fork, -f
	      Run as a daemon program in the background.  This is recommended
	      when used	from an	X startup script.

       -pause, -p <milliseconds>
	      Wait some	milliseconds before owning the selection.

	      Get the selection	only when the button 1 is not pressed.	This
	      may help with OpenOffice Writer.
