       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 appropriate 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 additional options listed below:

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

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

               Some X servers incorrectly  implement  PolyText  with  multiple
               strings  per  request.   This option suppresses 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 sur-
               rounding 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 foreground and background colors.

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

       -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 contains a set of new-line separated specifica-
               tions,  each  of  which  consists of a ditroff name, some white
               space and an XLFD pattern  with  *  characters  in  appropriate
               places  to  allow  all sizes to be listed.  The default fontMap

       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 support  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
