I am using gtk 1.2 and cant find a way to copy some text to the

Can you help me?

You don't say what type of widget but I'm going to assume a Gtk::Text
widget. I have the following method attached to a 'copy' button in one
of my apps. 

sub copy_to_clipboard {
  my $self = shift;
  my $text = $self->{_window}->{text};
  # nothing to do
  return unless ($text->get_length());
  if ($text->has_selection) {
  } else {
    $text->select_region(0, -1);
    $text->select_region(0, 0);
  return 1;
