NAME
       xdpr - dump an X window directly to a printer

SYNOPSIS
       xdpr [ filename ] [ -display host:display ] [ -Pprinter ] [ -device devtype ] [ option ...
       ]

DESCRIPTION
       Xdpr uses the commands xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp to dump an X window, process it for a  par-
       ticular printer type, and print it out on the printer of your choice.  This is the easiest
       way to get a printout of a window.  Xdpr by default will print the largest possible repre-
       sentation of the window on the output page.

       The  options  for  xdpr	are the same as those for xpr, xwd, and lpr or lp.  The most com-
       monly-used options are described below; see the manual pages for these commands	for  more
       detailed descriptions of the many options available.

OPTIONS
       filename
	      Specifies a file containing a window dump (created by xwd) to be printed instead of
	      selecting an X window.

       -Pprinter
	      Specifies a printer to send the output to.  If a	printer  name  is  not	specified
	      here,  xdpr  (really,  lpr or lp) will send your output to the printer specified by
	      the PRINTER environment variable.  Be sure that type of  the  printer  matches  the
	      type specified with the -device option.

       -display host:display[.screen]
	      Normally,  xdpr  gets the host and display number to use from the environment vari-
	      able ``DISPLAY.''  One can, however, specify them explicitly; see X(1).

       -device devtype
	      Specifies the device on which the file will be printed.  Currently supported:
		   la100  Digital LA100
		   ljet   HP LaserJet series and other monochrome PCL devices such  as	ThinkJet,
			  QuietJet, RuggedWriter, HP2560 series, and HP 2930 series printers
		   ln03   Digital LN03
		   pjet   HP PaintJet (color mode)
		   pjetxl HP HP PaintJet XL Color Graphics Printer (color mode)
		   pp	  IBM PP3812
		   ps	  PostScript printer

	      The  default  is	PostScript.  -device lw (LaserWriter) is equivalent to -device ps
	      and is provided only for backwards compatibility.

       -help  This option displays the list of options known to xdpr.

       Any other arguments will be passed to the xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp commands as  appropriate
       for each.
