NAME

       gxditview - display gtroff output files

SYNOPSIS

       gxditview [-toolkitoption ...] [-option ...] [filename]

DESCRIPTION

       The  gxditview program displays gtroff output on an X display.  It uses
       the standard X11 fonts, so it does not require  access  to  the  server
       machine for font loading.

       If filename is -, gxditview will read the standard input.

       The left mouse button brings up a menu with the following entries:

       Next Page
               Display the next page.

       Previous Page
               Display the previous page.

       Select Page
               Select a particular numbered page specified by a dialog box.

       Print   Print  the  gtroff output using a command specified by a dialog
               box.  The default command initially displayed is controlled  by
               the printCommand application resource, and by the -printCommand
               option.

       Open    Open for display a new file specified by  a  dialog  box.   The
               file should contain gtroff output.  If the filename starts with
               | it will be taken to be a command to read from.

       Quit    Exit from gxditview.

       The n, Space and Return keys are bound to the Next Page action.  The p,
       BackSpace and Delete keys are bound to the Previous Page action.  The q
       key is bound to the Quit action.  The r key is bound to the Rerasterize
       action which rereads the current file, and redisplays the current page;
       if the current file is a command, the command will be reexecuted.

       The paperlength and paperwidth commands in the DESC  file  specify  the
       length  and  width  in  machine  units of the virtual page displayed by
       gxditview.

OPTIONS

       Gxditview accepts all of the standard X Toolkit  command  line  options
       along with the additional options listed below:

       -help   This  option  indicates  that  a  brief  summary of the allowed
               options should be printed.

       -page   This option specifies the page number of  the  document  to  be
               displayed.

       -backingStore backing-store-type
               Redisplay of the gtroff output window can take upto a second or
               so, this option causes the server to save the  window  contents
               so  that when it is scrolled around the viewport, the window is
               painted from contents saved in backing  store.   backing-store-
               type can be one of Always, WhenMapped or NotUseful.

       -printCommand command
               The  default  command displayed in the dialog box for the Print
               menu entry will be command.

       -resolution res
               The gtroff output file will be displayed at a resolution of res
               dpi,  unless  the  DESC file contains the X11 command, in which
               case the device resolution will be used.  This corresponds  the
               Dvi widget’s resolution resource.  The default is 75.

       -filename string
               The  default  filename displayed in the dialog box for the Open
               menu entry will be string.  This can be either a filename, or a
               command starting with |.

       The  following  standard  X Toolkit command line arguments are commonly
       used with gxditview:

       -bg color
               This option specifies the color to use for  the  background  of
               the window.  The default is white.

       -bd color
               This  option  specifies  the color to use for the border of the
               window.  The default is black.

       -bw number
               This option  specifies  the  width  in  pixels  of  the  border
               surrounding the window.

       -fg color
               This  option  specifies  the  color to use for displaying text.
               The default is black.

       -fn font
               This option specifies the font to be used for displaying widget
               text.  The default is fixed.

       -rv     This option indicates that reverse video should be simulated by
               swapping the foreground and background colors.

       -geometry geometry
               This option specifies the preferred size and  position  of  the
               window.

       -display host:display
               This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -xrm resourcestring
               This option specifies a resource string to be used.

X DEFAULTS

       This  program uses the Dvi widget in the X Toolkit.  It understands all
       of the core resource names and classes as well as:

       width (class Width)
               Specifies the width of the window.

       height (class Height)
               Specifies the height of the window.

       foreground (class Foreground)
               Specifies the default foreground color.

       font (class Font)
               Specifies the font to be used for error messages.

       fontMap (class FontMap)
               Specifies the mapping from groff font names to  X  font  names.
               This  must  be  a  string containing a sequence of lines.  Each
               line contains two whitespace separated fields: first the  groff
               font name, and secondly the X font name.  The default is
               "\
