A text selection can be copied with ^C but not through a callback. To enable that some methods must be set protected and public:

set protected, so we can use it in the subclass to check if text was selected:
   static int    selected;
   static Fl_Help_View *current_view;

set public to copy the text:
   void          end_selection(int c=0);

I need this because I want to add a "copy selection" option to a context menu, something that can be done easily with i.e. Fl_Text_Display. Making it possible to select everything through a callback (like ^A) could be useful too.

end_selection() can be set protected, it can be subclassed instead.
