<p>After searching for a (near) perfect program to run arbitrary operations on a X selection buffer, i happened upon wmcliphist. It is not very good as firing of an op is an all or nothing deal.
So, after searching the ports index, i found xclip and xsel. Following is what i use to run a program on the last selected buffer in fvwm (2.5.6)...
+ I Exec $* `xclip -o`
AddToMenu clipMenu "Clipboard Operation" Title
+ &dict exec-xclip xterm -e dict
+ &w3m exec-xclip xterm -e w3m
+ &netscape exec-xclip netscape
+ &wget exec-xclip xterm -e wget
