     xditview - display ditroff output


     xditview [ -toolkitoption ... ] [ -option ... ] [ filename ]


     The xditview program displays ditroff output on an X
     display.  It uses no special metrics and automatically con-
     verts the printer coordinates into screen coordinates; using
     the user-specified screen resolution, rather than the actual
     resolution so that the appropriate fonts can be found.  If
     ``-'' is given as the filename, xditview reads from standard
     input. If ``|'' is the first character of filename, xditview
     forks sh to run the rest of the ``file name'' and uses the
     standard output of that command.


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

     -page page-number
             This option specifies the page number of the docu-
             ment to be displayed at start up time.

     -resolution screen-resolution
             This specifies the desired screen resolution to use;
             fonts will be opened by requesting this resolution
             field in the XLFD names.

             Some X servers incorrectly implement PolyText with
             multiple strings per request.  This option
             suppresses the use of this feature in xditview.

     -backingStore backing-store-type
             Redisplay can take up to 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.

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

     -bg color
             This option specifies the color to use for the back-
             ground 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 display-
             ing 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

     -geometry geometry
             This option specifies the preferred size and posi-
             tion 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.


     This program uses a Dvi widget.  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)
             To associate the ditroff fonts with appropriate X
             fonts, this string resource contains a set of new-
             line separated specifications, each of which con-
             sists of a ditroff name, some white space and an
             XLFD pattern with * characters in appropriate places
             to allow all sizes to be listed.  The default
             fontMap is:

     You can use any ditroff output file with xditview, although
     files which use the fonts appropriate to the fontMap will
     look more accurate on the screen. On servers which support
     scaled fonts, all requested font sizes will be accurately
     reflected on the screen; for servers which do not support
     scaled xditview will use the closest font from the same fam-
