     XDPR(1)		 X Version 11 (Release 5)	       XDPR(1)

     NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
	  xdpr - dump an X window directly to a	printer

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

     DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
	  Xdpr uses the	commands xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp to dump an X
	  window, process it for a particular 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 representation 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 commonly-used options are described
	  below; see the manual	pages for these	commands for more
	  detailed descriptions	of the many options available.

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

	       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 variable ``DISPLAY.''  One can,
	       however,	specify	them explicitly; see X(1).

	  -device devtype
	       Specifies the device on which the file will be printed.
	       Currently supported:
			   Digital LA100
		      ljet HP LaserJet series and other	monochrome PCL
			   devices such	as ThinkJet, QuietJet,
			   RuggedWriter, HP2560	series,	and HP2930
			   series printers
		      ln03 Digital LN03

			   (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.

	       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.
