How to track down target atom for svg to pass to xclip

+2
−0

Background

The xclip manual mentions use of targets:

-t, -target specify a particular data format using the given target atom. With -o the special target atom name "TARGETS" can be used to get a list of valid target atoms for this selection. For more information about target atoms refer to ICCCM section 2.6.2

But examples show a different format from what is shown in ICCCM section 2.6.2.

Question

How do I figure out what the target atom is for an svg? Especially by using the documentation (man xclip).

Tried

The manual mentioned:

With -o the special target atom name "TARGETS" can be used to get a list of valid target atoms for this selection.

but running:

xclip -i visualization.png
xclip -o -t TARGETS

gives:

  TARGETS
  UTF8_STRING
