NAME

       dpsexec - Display PostScript Executive



SYNOPSIS

       dpsexec  [  -display  name  ][  -sync ][ -backup ][ -noexec ][ -root ][
       -drawable windowId ][ -height n ][ -width n ]



DESCRIPTION

       dpsexec is a Display PostScript program that allows the user to  inter-
       act  directly  with the PostScript interpreter through a command inter-
       face.  dpsexec reads lines of text from standard input and passes  each
       line  to the PostScript interpreter for execution.  It creates a window
       that displays the results of graphics operations as they are  executed.
       dpsexec  exits  when  end of file is reached on standard input, or when
       the user types "quit<return>", which executes the PostScript quit oper-
       ator.

       By  default,  dpsexec executes the PostScript executive operator before
       it accepts any user input.  This operator puts  the  PostScript  inter-
       preter in "interactive executive" mode so that the user can control the
       interpreter directly.  In this mode, the  PostScript  interpreter  sup-
       ports  certain  line-editing  functions and prompts the user when it is
       ready to execute more input.  See section 2.4.4, "Using the Interpreter
       Interactively,"  of  the  PostScript  Language Reference Manual, Second
       Edition, for detailed information on this mode of operation.



OPTIONS

       -display name
              specifies the display on which to open a connection to the  Dis-
              play  PostScript system. If no display is specified, the DISPLAY
              environment variable is used.

       -sync  establishes a synchronous connection with the specified  X  dis-
              play.

       -backup
              uses  backing  store  for  the window in which graphics are dis-
              played, if possible.  This is generally only effective with  the
              DPS NX system.

       -noexec
              prevents  dpsexec  from  entering  "interactive executive" mode.
              The primary effect of this option is to inhibit printing the PS>
              prompt  before  each  line of input is accepted.  This option is
              useful when dpsexec is run with standard input redirected from a
              file or a pipe.

       -root  tells  dpsexec  to  draw  into the root window instead of into a
              window that it creates.

       -drawable windowId
              tells dpsexec to draw into the specified window instead of  into
              a window that it creates.

       -height n
              sets the height of the created window.

       -width n
              sets the width of the created window.



DIAGNOSTICS

       PostScript language error messages are printed to standard output.
