       across=integer
           Map number show across the monitor

       down=integer
           Map number show down the monitor

       mapsets=string[,string,...]
           Mapsets to use. Specify multiple mapsets comma separated

       delay=integer

DESCRIPTION

       d.slide.show is a UNIX Bourne shell macro which clears the entire screen, creates a series
       of  display  frames  on the graphics monitor, and displays in slideshow format each of the
       raster/vector map layers listed in the user-specified mapsets.  This  is  a  shell  script
       example  which  makes  extensive  use of GRASS and UNIX commands.  Users are encouraged to
       examine this macro and develop similar on-line demos using their own data files.

EXAMPLE

       The following command sequence shows the available raster maps, saves the view  to  a  PNG
       file and then converts it into a PDF file:
       # reset region:
       g.region -dp
       # open GRASS monitor with defined size:
       GRASS_WIDTH=800 GRASS_HEIGHT=1000 d.mon x0
       # we have around 40 maps in the Spearfish PERMANENT mapset:
       d.slide.show across=5 down=8 mapsets=PERMANENT
       # From Monitor to PNG to PDF:
       d.out.png out=spearfish_maps.png res=2
       convert spearfish_maps.png spearfish_maps.pdf
       xpdf spearfish_maps.pdf
