NAME
       fbserv -	Frame-buffer Server

SYNOPSIS
       fbserv [-s | S |	square_size] [-w | W | width] [-n | N |	height]
	      [-p port_number] [-F frame_buffer] [-v] [port_number]
	      [frame_buffer]

DESCRIPTION
       fbserv opens a framebuffer that may be used by any BRL-CAD routine
       accessing a framebuffer.	The -s (or -S) option specifies	that a square
       framebuffer of the specified size (in pixels) is	desired. The -n	(or
       -N) option indicates the	framebuffer height. The	-w (or -W) option
       indicates the framebuffer width.	The -v option (verbosity) yields more
       information about the current process. The -p option supplies a port
       number and the -F option	indicates what framebuffer device to use. The
       framebuffer device may be included on the command line without the -F
       option if it is the last	token on the command line. The port number may
       also be specified without the -p	option.	If options -F and -p are both
       omitted,	the port number	must be	followed by the	framebuffer device on
       the command line. While fbserv is running, its port number may then be
       used in other commands that access a framebuffer	by supplying that port
       number with the -F option for that command. The fbserv command may be
       executed	by users at a shell prompt, or it may be used as an inetd
       remote framebuffer server by specifying fbserv as a server program in
       inetd.conf .

EXAMPLES
	   fbserv 0 &

       This command will start a standalone fbserv daemon. Any access of a
       framebuffer specifying port 0 will result in opening a new framebuffer.

	   fbserv -s 1024 0 /dev/sgil &

       The above command will open a 1024 X 1024 '/dev/sgil' framebuffer and
       associate port number 0 with it.	Any access of a	framebuffer specifying
       port 0 will use the already opened '/dev/sgil' framebuffer.
