DESCRIPTION

The ghostview program provides an X11 user interface for the ghostscript interpreter. Ghostview and ghostscript function as two cooperating programs. Ghostview creates the viewing window and ghostscript draws in it.

Don't be alarmed by the number of options. Generally, one invokes ghostview with just one parameter, the name of the file to be previewed. If the filename is ``-'', ghostview will read from ``stdin''. The options provide a way to set X resources from the command line for a single invocation of ghostview. For that reason, discussion of the options is delayed until after the X resources are discussed.  

MAIN WINDOW

The main viewport is on the right side of the main window. If the page is larger than the viewport, there will be scroll bars along the bottom and right edges of the viewport. To the left of the viewport is the table of contents. If the PostScript file has document structuring convention (DSC) comments, the table of context will display the page labels (i.e. usually page numbers). To the left of the table of contents is the menu box. Each push button brings up a popup menu. Over the menu box and table of contents there are three optional labels that contain the title, date, and locator. The title label contains the document title found in the DSC comments. If no title can be found, the filename is used in its place. The date label contains the document date found in the DSC comments. If no date can be found, the last modified date of the file is used in its place. Since the title and date labels may be clipped by the main viewport, the date and title labels are push buttons that bring up a popup window with the title or date. These popup windows also show the ``document'' icon when the displayed string comes from the DSC comments. The locator shows the location of the cursor in the viewport. The location is expressed in the default user coordinate system. The locator is useful for measuring bounding boxes.

Within the main viewport the mouse cursor is a ``target'' when ghostscript is doing work. The cursor is a ``cross hair'' when ghostscript is idle. When moving to another page in a document, it is generally best to wait for ghostscript to become idle. Otherwise, the current ghostscript process must be killed and the overhead of reading the prologue is incurred again.

Ghostview will check to see if the file has been modified just before it displays a page or when the application is deiconified. If the file has changed, it will reopen the file.

Clicking anywhere within the viewport will popup a zoom window. The window is centered about the location that was clicked. Clicking with the first mouse button pops up a low resolution zoom window. Clicking with the second mouse button pops up a medium resolution zoom window. Clicking with the third mouse button pops up a high resolution zoom window. The cursor in the zoom window will display a ``target'' or ``cross hair'' depending on the state of ghostscript. The locator reports the position of the cursor in the zoom windows as well as the main viewport.

In the table of contents, the first and third mouse button function exactly as they do in a Text widget. That is the first mouse button selects text and the third mouse button extends selections. However, clicking on a page label with the second mouse button will cause that page to be shown. The page being displayed is marked with a '<' in the right margin of the table of contents.  

POPUP WINDOWS

There are several additional windows that may appear. The copyright window will appear whenever copyright information is requested. The information window appears whenever the ghostscript process writes to ``stdout'' or ``stderr''. Whenever there is an error in the PostScript program, the stack trace will appear in this window. When ghostscript is invoked without the quiet option, informational message regarding the state of ghostscript will appear in the information window. The copyright and information windows can be dismissed by pushing the ``Dismiss'' button.

The Select File dialog widget will appear when you wish to open or save a file. The Select File dialog widget allows an X11 user to select a file by typing the path or by browsing in directory listings and selecting entries with the mouse.

The space bar can be pressed to complete filenames, and tilde is used for home directories. All the usual key bindings can be used in the text widget, except for Return and Control-M, which are equivalent to pressing the OK button. The path can be scrolled using the large horizontal scroll bar, or by moving the insertion cursor in the text widget. The directory entries can be scrolled using the vertical scroll bars, or by holding a mouse button down and moving out of the listing. The scrolling speed varies with the distance from the listing.

The directory entries are terminated with special characters that show the type of entry, similar to the -F option of ls(1).

The Select File dialog widget is in total control until is pops down. No other controls in ghostview will be active during this time.  

MENUS

There are five buttons in the menu box. They are the File, Page, Magstep, Orientation, and Media buttons. There are keyboard accelerators for most of the popup menus. Be sure to read the keyboard accelerator section.
File
This popup menu controls file access:
Open...
Pops up the Select File window in preparation to open a file. The Select File widget is in total control until it pops down. Opens the file for viewing.
Reopen
Reopens the current file.
Print...
Pops up a dialog widget to ask for the printer name. Sends the whole document to the printer.
Print marked pages...
Pops up a dialog widget to ask for the printer name. Sends the marked pages to the printer. If no pages have been marked, the mark procedure is called before printing and then the unmark procedure is called after printing.
Save marked pages...
Pops up the Select File window in preparation to save a file. The Select File widget is in total control until it pops down. Saves the marked pages in the selected file. If no pages have been marked, the mark procedure is called before saving and then the unmark procedure is called after saving.
Copyright...
Pops up the copyright window.
Quit
Causes ghostview to exit.
Page
This popup menu controls page access:
Next
Display the next page.
Redisplay
Display the current page.
Previous
Display the previous page.
Center
Center the page in the viewport.
Mark
Mark the pages that have been selected in the table of contents. If no pages have been selected, mark the current page.
Unmark
Unmark the pages that have been selected in the table of contents. If no pages have been selected, unmark the current page.
Magstep
The Magstep menu controls the magnification at which the document is viewed. The default magstep of 0 implies no magnification (i.e. the size on the screen should match the size on paper). Ghostview borrows the notion of magstep from TeX. The magnification is defined to be 1.2**magstep. At magstep 1, the document is magnified by 1.2. At magstep -1, the document is reduced by 1.2. The Magstep menu lists values from -5 to 5.
Orientation
The Orientation menu controls the display orientation. A ``dot'' appears in front of the current orientation. The first mouse button sets the default orientation. The DSC comments may specify an orientation of Portrait or Landscape that overrides the default. In this case, a "document" appears in front of the current orientation. The second mouse button can be used to ``force'' the orientation on a document to override the DSC comments. If an orientation is being forced, then a ``tie fighter'' will appear in front of the current orientation.
Portrait
Set the orientation to Portrait. This implies no rotation. A portrait orientation indicates that the longest edge of the paper is parallel to the vertical (y) axis.
Landscape
Set the orientation to Landscape. This implies a clockwise rotation of the paper by 90 degrees. A landscape orientation indicates that the longest edge of the paper is parallel to the horizontal (x) axis.
Upside-down
Set the orientation to Upside-Down.
Seascape
Set the orientation to Seascape. This implies a counterclockwise rotation of the paper by 90 degrees.
Swap Landscape
Swap the meaning of Landscape and Seascape. Most of the Landscape documents that I have encountered require a 90 clockwise rotation of the paper to view. However, there is no standard and some documents need to be rotated the other way. The swap landscape button allows ghostview to automatically rotate the document the right way in response to the %%Orientation comment in the PostScript file.
Media
The entries on the Media menu set the page media. Media defined in the document appear at the beginning of the menu separated by a line from the standard media. A ``dot'' appears in front of the current media. The first mouse button sets the default media. The DSC comments may specify the page media that overrides the default. In this case, a "document" appears in front of the current media. The second mouse button can be used to ``force'' the media on a document to override the DSC comments. Forcing the media on an EPSF figure will override the Bounding Box. This makes is easy to view a figure with an incorrect %%BoundingBox comment. If a media is being forced, then a ``tie fighter'' will appear in front of the current media.

Here are the standard media names and their sizes. The size is given as the width and height in PostScript points.

Letter          612 x  792    (8.5 x 11  in.)
Tabloid         792 x 1224    (11  x 17  in.)

APPLICATION RESOURCES

The following application resources may be set to control the default behavior of ghostview.
showTitle (class Labels)
Tells whether to display the %%Title comment. The default is ``true''.
showDate (class Labels)
Tells whether to display the %%Data comment. The default is ``true''.
showLocator (class Labels)
Tells whether to display the locator. The default is ``true''.
autoCenter (class AutoCenter)
Tells whether to center the page within the viewport whenever the page size changes. The default is ``true''.
horizonalMargin (class Margin)
Tells how many pixels ghostview should reserve for window decorations in the horizontal direction. The default value is ``20''.
verticalMargin (class Margin)
Tells how many pixels ghostview should reserve for window decorations in the vertical direction. The default value is ``44''.
minimumMagstep (class Magstep)
Tells the smallest magstep to display. The default is ``-5''.
maximumMagstep (class Magstep)
Tells the largest magstep to display. The default is ``5''.
magstep (class Magstep)
Sets the default magstep. The default is ``0''.
orientation (class Orientation)
Sets the default orientation. The default is ``Portrait''.
page (class Page)
Gives the initial page to display. This resource only affects the display of the file listed on the command line. The default is NULL.
pageMedia (class PageMedia)
Sets the default page media. The default is ``Letter''.
forceOrientation (class Force)
Tells whether to force the orientation on the document. The default is ``false''.
forcePageMedia (class Force)
Tells whether to force the page media on the document. The default is ``false''.
swapLandscape (class SwapLandscape)
Tells whether to swap the meaning of Landscape and Seascape. The default is ``false''.
printCommand (class PrintCommand)
Sets the command used for printing. The printer environment variable is set to the desired printer and then this command is executed using popen. This command should read from ``stdin'' and send the file to the appropriate printer. The default value is ``lpr'' for BSD and ``lp'' for System V.
printerVariable (class PrinterVariable)
Gives the name of the printer environment variable. The default value is ``PRINTER'' for BSD and ``LPDEST'' for System V.
defaultPrinter (class DefaultPrinter)
Gives the printer name to use when the printer environment variable is not set. The default value is NULL.
printPrompt (class PrintPrompt)
Sets the prompt used to ask for the printer name. The default value is ``Printer Name: ''.
printFail (class printFail)
Sets the string used to inform the user that the printer command failed. The default is ``"lpr" command failed.''.
openPrompt (class OpenPrompt)
Sets the prompt used to ask for a file name to open. The default value is ``Open File: ''.
openFail (class OpenFail)
Sets the string used to inform the user that the open failed. The default value is ``Cannot open file: ''.
savePrompt (class SavePrompt)
Sets the prompt used to ask for a file name to save. The default value is ``Save File: ''.
saveFail (class SaveFail)
Sets the string used to inform the user that the save failed. The default value is ``Cannot save file: ''.
openWindows (class OpenWindows)
OpenWindows servers sometimes cause error messages about bitmaps not being 1 bit deep. Turning on this resource avoids the problem by not using any bitmaps. You lose the functionality of having the current magstep, orientation and media marked on the popup menus. The default value is ``false''.
ncdwm (class Ncdwm)
The Xt Intrinsics has a bug that causes bogus information in the window manager size hints. Ncdwm and possibly other window managers get confused by the bogus information and make the window extremely small. Twm and mwm ignore the bogus information. Turning on the resource avoids the problem with ncdwm by doing things slightly differently. However, this can confuse other window managers such as mwm. This bug is fixed in X11R5 fix-10. You should only set this resource if you have the problem. The default value is ``false''.
 

GHOSTVIEW WIDGET RESOURCES

Certain resources in the Ghostview widget may be set by the user. These selected resources are presented below.
arguments (class Arguments)
Additional arguments passed to the interpreter. It is convenient to name files that preload fonts here for PostScript programs that continually reload fonts while rendering a page. The default is no additional arguments.
busyCursor (class Cursor)
The cursor shown when ghostscript is rendering to the window. The busy cursor is set to the ``target'' by the application defaults.
cursor (class Cursor)
The cursor shown when ghostscript is idle. The default cursor is the ``crosshair''.
interpreter (class Interpreter)
The name of the executable to call to render the PostScript. It is convenient to set this resource to the path of an alternate version of ghostscript for testing. The default value is ``gs''.
palette (class Palette)
Tells ghostscript how to restrict the palette used when rendering. The possible values are ``color'', ``grayscale'', and ``monochrome''. The default value is ``color''.
quiet (class Quiet)
Tells ghostscript whether to supress informational messages. The default value is ``true''.
safer (class Safer)
Tells ghostscript whether to run in ``safer'' mode. The default value is ``true''.
useBackingPixmap (class UseBackingPixmap)
Tells whether to use a backing pixmap. If this resource is false, backing store is requested on the Ghostview window. Some X servers have limited resources for large pixmaps. Also, some X servers' backing store is much faster than using a backing pixmap. You should reset this resource if your X server is one of the server types mentioned. The default value is ``true''.
xdpi (class Resolution)
Sets the X resolution of the window in dots per inch. You can use this resource to affect the main window. Zoom windows have their X dpi set explicitly in the program. The default value is calculated from the screen metrics.
ydpi (class Resolution)
Sets the Y resolution of the window in dots per inch. You can use this resource to affect the main window. Zoom windows have their Y dpi set explicitly in the program. The default value is calculated from the screen metrics.
 

GHOSTVIEW WIDGET ACTIONS

notify(width height xdpi ydpi)
The notify event is used by the ghostview application for the locator and popup zoom windows. If the width and height are 0, the event is user for the locator. Otherwise, it triggers a popup zoom window. The default width and height are 72. The default xdpi and ydpi are 300. The height will default to the width if the height is omitted. The xdpi will default to the xdpi if the ydpi is omitted.

LIMITATIONS

If the document does not begin with ``%!PS-Adobe-'', it does not claim conformance to the document structuring convention. When these documents are encountered, the functionality of ghostview is limited to giving you scroll bars and a next page capability. Because there is no table of contents, skipping around the document and marking pages is impossible.

If there is no table of contents for the document, the popup zoom window will always show the first page.  

BUGS

If you find a bug, please send a bug report to ghostview@cs.wisc.edu.
