Are you saying that you have a clipboard but no clipboard application like Klipper for KDE? If you do have a clipboard tool then it will have a menu and one item will be Clear Clipboard contents or something like that. What desktop environment are you using?

I am using Backtrack 5 and i am new in linux and during my project work i need to clear the data of clipboard at particular time period. I google it and found that xclip and xsel are useful to do that but they are not currently installed in my system. Now apart from installtion of xlip aor any other software i want to clean data of clipboard using terminal commands of linux. Is it possible?

Sorry I know absolutely nothing about Backtrack of any number. I see that both xclip and xsel are regular packages on Debian. Have you searched if Backtrack has either of those packages?

why are you so intent on not installing xclip and xsel?
they are part of any more-than-barebones xorg-server.
some distro's choose to offer them as seperate packages, others have them as part of the X server (meta) package.
