NAME
       xv - interactive	image display for the X	Window System

SYNTAX
       xv [options] [filename[filename...]]

DESCRIPTION
       The  xv	program	 displays images on workstations and terminals running
       the X Window System, Version 11.	 Supported image formats include  PBM,
       PGM,  PPM,  X11	bitmap,	 XWD, XPM, Utah	Raster Toolkit RLE, PDS/VICAR,
       FITS, Sun Rasterfile, GIF, PCX, Targa/TGA, BMP, WBMP, IRIS  RGB,	 Spec-
       trum SCREEN$, PM, and optionally	PNG, JPEG, JPEG	2000, JP2, TIFF, Post-
       Script, PDF, G3 fax, MAG, PIC, MAKI (640x400), PI, and PIC2.

       Aside from the usage screen (available by typing	'xv -help' at the com-
       mand  line),  documentation  for	 XV is now distributed only as a Post-
       Script (or PDF) file, as	it has gotten enormous and is no  longer  very
       well  suited  to	 the  'man' page format.  Print	a copy of the (100-ish
       page) manual found in docs/xvdocs.ps.  If you are  unable  to  get  the
       manual to print on your printer,	you may	purchase a printed copy	of the
       XV manual.  Click on 'About XV' in the program to get further  informa-
       tion.

       If  you	don't  have the	PostScript file, it is part of the standard XV
       distribution,  the  latest  version  of	which  can  be	obtained  from
       http://www.trilon.com/xv/  or  via anonymous ftp	from ftp.cis.upenn.edu
       in the directory	pub/xv .

       This version has	been patched with the XV Jumbo Patches,	available from
       http://pobox.com/~newt/greg_xv.html.
