       xmag - magnify parts of the screen

       xmag [ -mag magfactor ] [ -source geom ]	[ -toolkitoption ... ]

       The  xmag program allows	you to magnify portions	of an X	screen.	 If no
       explicit	region is specified, a square with the pointer	in  the	 upper
       left  corner is displayed indicating the	area to	be enlarged.  The area
       can be dragged out to the desired size by pressing Button  2.   Once  a
       region has been selected, a window is popped up showing a blown up ver-
       sion of the region in which each	pixel in the source  image  is	repre-
       sented  by  a  small square of the same color.  Pressing	Button1	in the
       enlargement window shows	the position and RGB value of the pixel	 under
       the  pointer  until  the	button is released.  Typing ``Q'' or ``^C'' in
       the enlargement window exits the	program.  The application has  5  but-
       tons  across  its top.  Close deletes this particular magnification in-
       stance.	Replace	brings up the rubber band selector again to select an-
       other region for	this magnification instance.  New brings up the	rubber
       band selector to	create a new magnification instance.  Select puts  the
       magnification  image into the primary selection.	 Paste copies the pri-
       mary selection buffer into xmag.	 Note that you can cut and  paste  be-
       tween  xmag and the bitmap program.  Resizing xmag resizes the magnifi-
       cation area.  xmag preserves the	colormap, visual, and window depth  of
       the source.

       xmag uses the X Toolkit and the Athena Widget Set.  The magnified image
       is displayed in the Scale widget.  For more information,	see the	Athena
       Widget  Set  documentation.   Below is the widget structure of the xmag
       application.  Indentation indicates hierarchical	 structure.  The  wid-
       get class name is given first, followed by the widget instance name.

       -source geom   This  option  specifies  the size	and/or location	of the
		      source region on the screen.  By default,	a 64x64	square
		      is  provided  for	 the  user  to	select	an area	of the

       -mag integer   This option indicates the	magnification to be  used.   5
		      is the default.
