       gxditview - display gtroff output files

       gxditview [-toolkitoption ...] [-option ...] [filename]

       The  gxditview program displays gtroff output on	an X display.  It uses
       the standard X11	fonts, so it does not require access to	the server ma-
       chine for font loading.

       If filename is -, gxditview will	read the standard input.

       The left	mouse button brings up a menu with the following entries:

       Next Page
	       Display the next	page.

       Previous	Page
	       Display the previous page.

       Select Page
	       Select a	particular numbered page specified by a	dialog box.

       Print   Print  the  gtroff output using a command specified by a	dialog
	       box.  The default command initially displayed is	controlled  by
	       the printCommand	application resource, and by the -printCommand

       Open    Open for	display	a new file specified by	 a  dialog  box.   The
	       file should contain gtroff output.  If the filename starts with
	       | it will be taken to be	a command to read from.

       Quit    Exit from gxditview.

       The n, Space and	Return keys are	bound to the Next Page action.	The p,
       BackSpace and Delete keys are bound to the Previous Page	action.	 The q
       key is bound to the Quit	action.	 The r key is bound to the Rerasterize
       action which rereads the	current	file, and redisplays the current page;
       if the current file is a	command, the command will be reexecuted.

       The paperlength and paperwidth commands in the DESC  file  specify  the
       length  and  width  in  machine	units of the virtual page displayed by

       Gxditview accepts all of	the standard X Toolkit	command	 line  options
       along with the additional options listed	below:

       -help   This  option  indicates that a brief summary of the allowed op-
	       tions should be printed.

       -page   This option specifies the page number of	 the  document	to  be

       -backingStore backing-store-type
	       Redisplay of the	gtroff output window can take upto 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.

       -printCommand command
	       The  default  command displayed in the dialog box for the Print
	       menu entry will be command.

       -resolution res
	       The gtroff output file will be displayed	at a resolution	of res
	       dpi,  unless  the  DESC file contains the X11 command, in which
	       case the	device resolution will be used.	 This corresponds  the
	       Dvi widget's resolution resource.  The default is 75.

       -filename string
	       The  default  filename displayed	in the dialog box for the Open
	       menu entry will be string.  This	can be either a	filename, or a
	       command starting	with |.

       The  following  standard	 X Toolkit command line	arguments are commonly
       used with gxditview:

       -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 the Dvi widget in the	X Toolkit.  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)
	       Specifies the mapping from groff	font names to  X  font	names.
	       This  must  be  a  string containing a sequence of lines.  Each
	       line contains two whitespace separated fields: first the	 groff
	       font name, and secondly the X font name.	 The default is
