XDPR(1)			    General Commands Manual		       XDPR(1)

NAME
       xdpr - dump an X	window directly	to a printer

SYNOPSIS
       xdpr [ filename ] [ -display host:display ] [ -Pprinter ] [ -device de-
       vtype ] [ option	...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       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 op-
       tions available.

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

       -Pprinter
	      Specifies	a printer to send the output to.  If a printer name is
	      not specified here, xdpr (really,	lpr or lp) will	send your out-
	      put to the printer specified by the  PRINTER  environment	 vari-
	      able.   Be sure that type	of the printer matches the type	speci-
	      fied 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.	  Cur-
	      rently supported:
		   la100  Digital LA100
		   ljet	  HP  LaserJet series and other	monochrome PCL devices
			  such as ThinkJet, QuietJet, RuggedWriter, HP2560 se-
			  ries,	and HP 2930 series printers
		   ln03	  Digital LN03
		   pjet	  HP PaintJet (color mode)
		   pjetxl HP  HP  PaintJet  XL	Color  Graphics	Printer	(color
			  mode)
		   pp	  IBM PP3812
		   ps	  PostScript printer

	      The default is PostScript.  -device lw (LaserWriter) is  equiva-
	      lent  to	-device	ps and is provided only	for backwards compati-
	      bility.

       -help  This option displays the list of options known to	xdpr.

       Any other arguments will	be passed to the xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp  com-
       mands as	appropriate for	each.
