       XSelectionRequestEvent -	SelectionRequest event structure

       The structure for SelectionRequest events contains:

       typedef struct {
	       int type;       /* SelectionRequest */
	       unsigned	long serial;   /* # of last request processed by server	*/
	       Bool send_event;	       /* true if this came from a SendEvent request */
	       Display *display;       /* Display the event was	read from */
	       Window owner;
	       Window requestor;
	       Atom selection;
	       Atom target;
	       Atom property;
	       Time time;
       } XSelectionRequestEvent;

       When you	receive	this event, the	structure members are set as follows.

       The  type  member  is set to the	event type constant name that uniquely
       identifies it.  For example, when the X server reports a	GraphicsExpose
       event  to a client application, it sends	an XGraphicsExposeEvent	struc-
       ture with the type member set to	GraphicsExpose.	 The display member is
       set  to a pointer to the	display	the event was read on.	The send_event
       member is set to	True if	the event came from a SendEvent	 protocol  re-
       quest.  The serial member is set	from the serial	number reported	in the
       protocol	but expanded from the 16-bit least-significant bits to a  full
       32-bit value.  The window member	is set to the window that is most use-
       ful to toolkit dispatchers.

       The owner member	is set to the window that was specified	by the current
       owner  in  its XSetSelectionOwner call.	The requestor member is	set to
       the window requesting the selection.  The selection member  is  set  to
       the atom	that names the selection.  For example,	PRIMARY	is used	to in-
       dicate the primary selection.  The target member	is  set	 to  the  atom
       that indicates the type the selection is	desired	in.  The property mem-
       ber can be a property name or None.  The	time  member  is  set  to  the
       timestamp or CurrentTime	value from the ConvertSelection	request.
