page - view FAX, bitmap, and PostScript files
page file ...
Page reads each file, either a CCITT Group 3 encoded file (such as a FAX page), Plan 9
bitmap file (see bitmap(6)), or PostScript in sequence and displays it in its window.
Pressing and holding button 1 permits panning about the page. Typing a q or control-D
exits the program. Typing any other character or clicking button 2 advances to the next
file. Button 3 has a menu of the files to be selected for viewing in any order.
When possible, page overlaps the read of the next page with the display of the current
Page calls gs(1) to convert PostScript files to Group 3 encoded files. All are converted
before any pages are displayed. The menu then displays one line for each page of the doc-
New York Times FAX files, updated daily.
The mouse cursor changes to an arrow and ellipsis when page is reading a file.
Page is written in ALEF and therefore has binaries only for MIPS, SPARC, and i386
If any of the files are PostScript, they all must be.
