Manual Reference Pages  -  XCUT (1)

NAME

xcut - Manipulate X cut buffers from command line

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

xcut [-display displayname] [-p]

DESCRIPTION

This is the manual page for xcut version 0.2.

Xcut takes the contents of standard input and store it into the X cut and paste buffer. The data is then available for pasting into applications which support cut and paste operations.

I was initially looking for something that would generate canned shell commands and stick them in the X cut buffer so all the user needed to do was do hit the middle mouse button in an xterm and the commands would be executed. The original idea was to stick a short shell script to insert a MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE entry in the .Xauthority file, but I've found xcut useful for other things such as pasting the output of shell commands into mail messages and so forth.

OPTIONS

-display Connect to the specified X host, display number and screen.
-p Paste contents of X cut buffer to standard output.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

The DISPLAY environment variable is used for the name of the X display to connect to if the -display command line option is not present.
