;;; Synched up with: FSF 19.30 (select.el).

;;; Commentary:

;; This file is dumped with XEmacs (when X support is compiled in).

;; The selection code requires us to use certain symbols whose names are
;; all upper-case; this may seem tasteless, but it makes there be a 1:1
;; correspondence between these symbols and X Atoms (which are upcased).
