It sounds like you're thinking of a different XCB than the one
associated with this list.  This is the X C Binding, a library providing
a client interface to the X protocol, along with machine-readable
descriptions of the protocol.

For what you want, you might take a look at xclip
(http://packages.debian.org/unstable/x11/xclip); it provides a
command-line interface to the X clipboard.  Writing a similar
application using XCB (or just porting xclip to XCB) would probably be
relatively straightforward.
