       xditview - display ditroff output

       xditview [ -toolkitoption ... ] [ -option ... ] [ filename ]

       The  xditview program displays ditroff output on an X display.  It uses no special metrics
       and automatically converts the printer coordinates  into  screen  coordinates;  using  the
       user-specified  screen resolution, rather than the actual resolution so that the appropri-
       ate fonts can be found.	If ``-'' is given as the filename, xditview reads  from  standard
       input.	If ``|'' is the first character of filename, xditview forks sh to run the rest of
       the ``file name'' and uses the standard output of that command.

       Xditview accepts all of the standard X Toolkit command line options along with  the  addi-
       tional options listed below:

       -page page-number
	       This  option specifies the page number of the document to be displayed at start up

       -resolution screen-resolution
	       This specifies the desired screen resolution to	use;  fonts  will  be  opened  by
	       requesting this resolution field in the XLFD names.

	       Some  X	servers incorrectly implement PolyText with multiple strings per request.
	       This option suppesses the use of this feature in xditview.

       -backingStore backing-store-type
	       Redisplay can take up to a second or so; this option causes the server to save the
	       window  contents  so  that  when it is scrolled around the viewport, the window is
	       painted from contents saved in backing store.  backing-store-type can  be  one  of
	       Always, WhenMapped or NotUseful.

       The following standard X Toolkit command line arguments are commonly used with xditview:

       -bg color
	       This  option  specifies	the  color  to use for the background of the window.  The
	       default is white.

       -bd color
	       This option specifies the color to use for the border of the window.  The  default
	       is black.

       -bw number
	       This option specifies the width in pixels of the border surrounding the window.

       -fg color
	       This option specifies the color to use for displaying text.  The default is black.

       -fn font
	       This option specifies the font to be used for displaying widget text.  The default
	       is fixed.

       -rv     This option indicates that reverse video should be simulated by swapping the fore-
	       ground and background colors.

       -geometry geometry
	       This option specifies the preferred size and position of the window.

       -display host:display
	       This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -xrm resourcestring
	       This option specifies a resource string to be used.

       This program uses a Dvi widget.	It understands all of the core resource names and classes
       as well as:

       width (class Width)
	       Specifies the width of the window.

       height (class Height)
	       Specifies the height of the window.

       foreground (class Foreground)
	       Specifies the default foreground color.

       font (class Font)
	       Specifies the font to be used for error messages.

       FontMap (class FontMap)
	       To associate the ditroff fonts with appropriate X fonts, this string resource con-
	       tains  a  set  of  new-line  separated specifications, each of which consists of a
	       ditroff name, some white space and an XLFD pattern with * characters in	appropri-
	       ate places to allow all sizes to be listed.  The default fontMap is:

	       R    -*-times-medium-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1\n\
	       I    -*-times-medium-i-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1\n\

	       AI   -*-charter-medium-i-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1\n\
	       AB   -*-charter-bold-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1\n\

	       S2   -*-symbol-medium-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-adobe-fontspecific\n

       You  can  use  any  ditroff  output file with xditview, although files which use the fonts
       appropriate to the fontMap will look more accurate on the screen.  On servers  which  sup-
       port  scaled  fonts,  all requested font sizes will be accurately reflected on the screen;
       for servers which do not support scaled xditview will use the closest font from	the  same
