Note also that Puppy 4.00 has 'xclip' -- type 'man xclip' in a terminal for help.

Thanks Barry; I didn't know about xclip. From what I can see, both do about the same things...perhaps xsel takes a little less typing:

xsel -b == xclip -o -sel clip
xsel == xclip -o

I just realized that you can pipe to them...which is nice for sending output from scripts right to the clipboard:

passfile selection | xsel (or xclip)
