can we capture (grab) xorg clipboard information directly without pressing middle button?

Have you tried parcellite/glipper/klipper, xclip or xsel?
Is there a way to capture that data directly, without middle
click into a text destination, so that I can then manipulate that
data with a program, perhaps tied to a hotkey sequence.
Here is a use case.
I have a big document that I will want to do a regexp
manipulation on and then paste.
Meaning that you don't want to save the changes in the original
Can I do that in one step by
binding to a hotkey sequence?
One step instead of *two* steps?
Where is the data stored after I highlight text??
