fd2ps - Translates fdesign output to PostScript
fd2ps [-options] input.[fd] [output]
The program fd2ps
translates the fd
file produced by the interface
builder program fdesign
of the Forms Library
(ps), or optionally Encapsulated PostScript (eps) for printing or inclusion
into other documents. The input file can be given with or without the .fd
extension. If output file name is not specified, used is a filename derived
from the input file name by replacing the .fd extension with ps or eps. If
output filename is specified as -, stdout is used.
accepts the following command line options
- Prints a brief summary of all command line options.
- Prints the current version of fd2ps and exits.
- The option requests portrait orientation. By default, the
orientation is switched to landscape if portrait will not fit the page.
This option overrides the default.
- This options requests landscape output.
- -bw n
- Specifies the border width of the interface. By default
this information is obtained from the .fd file.
- This option requests Encapsulated PostScript instead of the
plain PostScript output.
- This options requests all colors be converted to gray
levels. By default, fd2ps outputs colors as specified in the .fd
- -G f
- specifies a gamma factor that will be used to adjust the
builtin colors in a non-linear fashion. It can be thought as a way to
brighten or dim the builtin colors: larger the gamma, brighter the color.
The default gamma is 1.0.
- -dpi f
- This option specifies the screen resolution on which the
user interface is designed. By giving a smaller or larger dpi number than
that of the screen, the output is in effect being enlarged or shrunk. This
flag does not affect text size. The default DPI is 85. If the .fd file is
specified in device independent unit, this flag does not have effect.
- -rgb file
- This option specifies the path to the X color database
(rgb.txt) for use in parsing XPM colornames. The default is
/usr/lib/X11/rgb.txt. Environment variable RGBFile can be used to
change the default.
- -paper name
- This option specifies the paper name, such as A4, Letter
etc. The output PostScript will always center on the page. Use name
all to get a list of the known paper names and sizes. The default
is US Letter unless environment variable PAPER is set to one of the
known paper names.
- -pw f
- Specifies the paper width, in inches.
- -ph f
- Specifies the paper height, in inches.
- This option specifies verbose output, i.e., comments in the
output PostScript file. Most useful for debugging the fd2ps
