NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       xdpr - dump an X window directly to a printer

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

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.  host:display Normally,
  xdpr  gets the host and display number to use from
       the environment variable DISPLAY. One can, however,  specify
  them  explicitly; see X(1X).  Specifies the device on
       which the file  will  be  printed.   Currently  supported:
       LA100  HP LaserJet series and other monochrome PCL devices
       such as ThinkJet, QuietJet,  RuggedWriter,  HP560  series,
       and HP930 series printers LN03 HP PaintJet (color mode) HP
       HP PaintJet XL Color Graphics  Printer  (color  mode)  IBM
       PP3812 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.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  xdpr command uses the commands xwd, xpr, and lpr orlp
       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 above; see the manual pages for  these  commands
       for  more detailed descriptions of the many options available.
