NAME
dpsexec - Display PostScript Executive
SYNOPSIS
dpsexec [ -display name ][ -sync ][ -backup ][ -noexec ][ -root ][ -drawable windowId ][ -height n ][ -width n ]
DESCRIPTION
dpsexec is a Display PostScript program that allows the user to interact directly with the PostScript interpreter through a command inter- face. dpsexec reads lines of text from standard input and passes each line to the PostScript interpreter for execution. It creates a win- dow 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 inter- preter in "interactive executive" mode so that the user can control the interpreter directly. In this mode, the PostScript interpreter supports certain line-editing functions and prompts the user when it is ready to execute more input. See section 2.4.4, "Using the Inter- preter Interactively," of the PostScript Language Reference Manual, Second Edition, for detailed information on this mode of operation.
OPTIONS
-display name specifies the display on which to open a connection to the Display PostScript system. If no display is specified, the DISPLAY envi- ronment variable is used. -sync establishes a synchronous connection with the specified X display. -backup uses backing store for the window in which graphics are displayed, if possible. This is generally only effective with the DPS NX system. -noexec 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 creates. -drawable windowId tells dpsexec to draw into the specified window instead of into a window that it creates. -height n sets the height of the created window. -width n sets the width of the created window.
DIAGNOSTICS
PostScript language error messages are printed to standard output.
