Here are some Linux sources  (they should work on other types of UNIX systems as well).

The Programs

aee An easy to use text editor. Intended to be usable with little or no instruction. Provides both a terminal (curses based) interface and native X-Windows interface (in which case the executable is called xae). Features include pop-up menus, journalling (to recover from system crash or loss of connection), cut-and-paste, multiple buffers (associated with files or not), and much more.

cutview A history mechanism for cut-n-paste operations. Also converts transparently between selections and cutbuffer0.  In the screen shot below cutview has 5 buffers, and the buffer containing the string 'neat stuff' is locked, so that the information in that buffer is persistent and is not replaced by subsequent selections.  Buffers that are not locked are replaced in a least recently used manner each time the user selects (or cuts or copies) text.  To make the contents of a cutview the current selection so it can be pasted, the user simply needs to click on the arrow next to the buffer.  Users can also print or edit the contents of a buffer via a menu.  cutview can be compiled with Motif or Lesstif.

cutview now works in GNOME!
