Specifically, `wayclip` +is a `wlr-data-control` protocol client. + +wayclip distinguishes itself from other Wayland clipboard utilities +in the following ways: +- small - the whole codebase is less than 300 lines! (excluding whitespace) +- Unixy - all it does is copy and paste; other functions are for other programs +- no dynamic memory allocation + +## Usage + +To copy data, just pipe it into `waycopy`, and optionally specify a seat and mimetype: + +``` +$ echo "howdy" | waycopy -s seat0 -t text/plain & +``` +(note that `waycopy` does not automatically fork into the background) + +To paste, optionally specify a seat and desired mimetype: +``` +$ waypaste -s seat0 -t text/plain +howdy +$ +```
