xdpr - dump an X window directly to a printer
xdpr [ filename
] [ -display host:display ] [ -Pprinter ] [ -device devtype ] [ option ... ]
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 options available.
- Specifies a file containing
a window dump (created by xwd) to be printed instead of selecting an X
- Specifies a printer to send the output to. If a printer
name is not specified here, xdpr (really, lpr or lp) will send your output
to the printer specified by the PRINTER environment variable. Be sure that
type of the printer matches the type specified with the -device option.
- 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. Currently supported:
- Digital LA100
series and other monochrome PCL devices such as ThinkJet, QuietJet, RuggedWriter,
2560 series, and HP
2930 series printers
- Digital LN03
- HP PaintJet
- HP HP PaintJet XL Color Graphics Printer (color mode)
- IBM PP3812
- PostScript printer
- The default is PostScript.
- -device lw
(LaserWriter) is equivalent to -device ps and is provided only for backwards
- This option displays the list of options known to xdpr.
Any other arguments will be passed to the xwd, xpr, and lpr or lp commands
as appropriate for each.
