Plan 9 - man page for page (plan9 section 1)

PAGE(1) 			     General Commands Manual				  PAGE(1)

NAME
       page - view FAX, bitmap, and PostScript files

SYNOPSIS
       page file ...

DESCRIPTION
       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
       one.

       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-
       uments.

FILES
       /lib/nyt/*
	      New York Times FAX files, updated daily.

SEE ALSO
       gs(1)

SOURCE
       /sys/src/cmd/page

DIAGNOSTICS
       The mouse cursor changes to an arrow and ellipsis when page is reading a file.

BUGS
       Page is written in ALEF and  therefore  has  binaries  only  for  MIPS,	SPARC,	and  i386
       machines.
       If any of the files are PostScript, they all must be.
