hmm, good idea. that also keeps all of this bloat out of autocutsel. ok, feel free to close this item, and sorry for bothering you... :P

I had some problems with your patch. Sometimes it owns the PRIMARY selection when it shouldn't (like with the bug fixed in 0.7.0).

I have a suggestion for your particular problem: you could run 2 instances of autocutsel: one with the PRIMARY selection, and the other one with the CLIPBOARD. Since both will synchronize with the cutbuffer, everything should be kept synchronized.

ok, a second pass at the patch is attached. the default behavior is unchanged, as is -selection PRIMARY and -selection CLIPBOARD. -selection PRIMARY,CLIPBOARD invokes the new behavior.

also, if the need arises, it shouldn't be hard to extend it to support more than two selections.

good point...and thanks for the feedback, and for an awesome tool!

several "-selection" arguments makes sense to me. i'll add that and re-post.

Synchronizing these two selections is not the primary goal of autocutsel and shouldn't be the default behavior. I'd add this feature as an option. For example when providing several "-selection" arguments. Or with a specific argument on command line (-all?).

this patch updates autocutsel to synchronize the primary selection, clipboard, and cut buffer simultaneously. if any one is changed, the other two are updated/owned (if necessary.)

i wrote this patch as a workaround to address the lack of a keyboard shortcut in mozilla to paste the primary selection. (this was slowly driving my crazy. :P)

this is definitely a big design change, not a bug fix, so don't feel like you're obligated to include it.
