       dpsexec - Display PostScript Executive

       dpsexec	[  -display name ][ -sync ][ -backup ][ -noexec ][ -root ][ -drawable windowId ][
       -height n ][ -width n ]

       dpsexec is a Display PostScript program that allows the user to interact directly with the
       PostScript  interpreter	through  a  command  interface.  dpsexec reads lines of text from
       standard input and passes each line to the PostScript interpreter for execution.  It  cre-
       ates  a	window	that  displays	the  results of graphics operations as they are executed.
       dpsexec exits when end of file is reached on  standard  input,  or  when  the  user  types
       "quit<return>", which executes the PostScript quit operator.

       By  default, dpsexec executes the PostScript executive operator before it accepts any user
       input.  This operator puts the PostScript interpreter in "interactive executive"  mode  so
       that  the  user can control the interpreter directly.  In this mode, the PostScript inter-
       preter supports certain line-editing functions and prompts the user when it  is	ready  to
       execute	more  input.   See  section  2.4.4, "Using the Interpreter Interactively," of the
       PostScript Language Reference Manual, Second Edition, for  detailed  information  on  this
       mode of operation.

       -display name
	      specifies  the display on which to open a connection to the Display PostScript sys-
	      tem. If no display is specified, the DISPLAY environment variable is used.

       -sync  establishes a synchronous connection with the specified X display.

	      uses backing store for the window in which graphics  are	displayed,  if	possible.
	      This is generally only effective with the DPS NX system.

	      prevents dpsexec from entering "interactive executive" mode.  The primary effect of
	      this option is to inhibit printing the PS> prompt before	each  line  of	input  is
	      accepted.  This option is useful when dpsexec is run with standard input redirected
	      from a file or a pipe.

       -root  tells dpsexec to draw into the root window instead of into a window  that  it  cre-

       -drawable windowId
	      tells  dpsexec  to  draw into the specified window instead of into a window that it

       -height n
	      sets the height of the created window.

       -width n
	      sets the width of the created window.

       PostScript language error messages are printed to standard output.
