wxcopy(1) copy stdin or file into cutbuffer


wxcopy [options] [filename]


wxcopy copies stdin or filename into the cutbuffer. If no cutbuffer is specified, the data will be copied into cutbuffer 0 and the other cutbuffers will be rotated, if present. If a cutbuffer is specified, the data is copied into that cutbuffer, and no rotation of buffers is performed.


-cutbuffer number
Specifies the number of the cutbuffer to copy data to.
-display display-name
The data will be copied in the cutbuffers of the specified display/screen.
Makes the normal 64kb limit check not to be performed, making the buffer attempt to grow to whatever size is required.
Clears the PRIMARY selection owner. In practice it means that when you try to paste the data with the middle mouse button (for example) it will paste the data from cut buffer 0, instead of any eventually existing mouse selection.
