NAME
       xditview	- display ditroff output

SYNOPSIS
       xditview	[ -toolkitoption ... ] [ -option ... ] [ filename ]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       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
	       names.

       -noPolyText
	       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
	       window.

       -display	host:display
	       This option specifies the X server to contact.

       -xrm resourcestring
	       This option specifies a resource	string to be used.

X DEFAULTS
       This program uses a Dvi widget.	It understands all  of	the  core  re-
       source 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
	       is:

	       R    -*-times-medium-r-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1\n\
	       I    -*-times-medium-i-normal--*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1\n\

USING XDITVIEW WITH DITROFF
       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
       family.
