NAME
xdpr - dump an X window directly to a printer
SYNOPSIS
xdpr [ filename ] [ -display host:display ] [ -Pprinter ] [ -device devtype ] [ option ... ]
DESCRIPTION
Xdpr uses the commands xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp to dump an X window, process it for a particular printer type, and print it out on the printer of your choice. This is the easiest way to get a printout of a window. Xdpr by default will print the largest possible represen- tation of the window on the output page. The options for xdpr are the same as those for xpr, xwd, and lpr or lp. The most commonly-used options are described below; see the manual pages for these commands for more detailed descriptions of the many options available.
OPTIONS
filename Specifies a file containing a window dump (created by xwd) to be printed instead of selecting an X window. -Pprinter Specifies a printer to send the output to. If a printer name is not specified here, xdpr (really, lpr or lp) will send your output to the printer specified by the PRINTER environment variable. Be sure that type of the printer matches the type specified with the -device option. -display host:display[.screen] Normally, xdpr gets the host and display number to use from the environment variable ``DISPLAY.'' One can, however, specify them explicitly; see X(1). -device devtype Specifies the device on which the file will be printed. Currently supported: la100 Digital LA100 ljet HP LaserJet series and other monochrome PCL devices such as ThinkJet, QuietJet, RuggedWriter, HP2560 series, and HP 2930 series printers ln03 Digital LN03 pjet HP PaintJet (color mode) pjetxl HP HP PaintJet XL Color Graphics Printer (color mode) pp IBM PP3812 ps PostScript printer The default is PostScript. -device lw (LaserWriter) is equivalent to -device ps and is provided only for backwards compatibility. -help This option displays the list of options known to xdpr. Any other arguments will be passed to the xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp commands as appropriate for each.
