A small suggestion for interaction improvement: xclip should print a short usage information, when invoked with --help. Apart from that, it compiles and works like a charm on my Debian machine.

    Addendum: I know of xclip's -help switch, but most other CLI programs use two dashes, so that's what most people (and POSIX) expect.

    for X application, -help seems to be the standard syntax
    see xedit, xevt which support only "-help" switch (not "--help" switch)
