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.
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-
tells dpsexec to draw into the specified window instead of into a window that it
sets the height of the created window.
sets the width of the created window.
PostScript language error messages are printed to standard output.
