Package: xterm
Version: 261-1
Severity: wishlist

This is a wishlist bug. I was not able to locate upstream bug tracker
so I'm filing it here instead, please forward if appropriate.

I wish that xterm could be configured to support freedesktop.org style
clipboard behavior. For example I'd like to be able to do the

1) select text using mouse
2) hit ctrl-shift-c
3) hit ctrl-shift-v

with the following expected results:

2) selected text is added to clipboard (not only primary selection)
3) contents of clipboard is sent as input to the application running
under xterm

I can implement step 3 with

XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override\n\
 Shift Ctrl <KeyPress> v:insert-selection(CLIPBOARD)

in ~/.Xresources.

However, step 2 seems to be tricky to implement currently. I tried

XTerm*VT100.Translations: #override\n\
 Shift Ctrl <KeyPress> v:insert-selection(CLIPBOARD)\n\

which is almost what I want. The problem is that it overwrites the
contents of clipboard too early, it should wait for me to press
ctrl-shift-c. Since it does not do this it is very easy to
accidentally destroy contents of clipboard by selecting some
text. Especially on a touchscreen it is very easy to accidentally
select text.

Would it be possible to add some sort of "copy contents of primary
selection to clipboard" command to xterm so that I could bind it to
