dump an X window directly to a printer
[-display host:display] [-Pprinter]
[-device printer_device] [option ... ]
xdpr uses the commands
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 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.
Any other arguments will be passed to the
commands as appropriate for each.
Specifies a file containing a window dump (created by xwd)
to be printed instead of selecting an X window.
Specifies a printer to send the output to.
If a printer name is not specified here,
xdpr (really, 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
Specifies the device type of the printer.
Available printer devices are ``ln03'' for the DEC LN03,
``pp'' for the IBM 3812 PagePrinter, and ``ps'' for any
postscript printer (e.g. DEC LN03R or LPS40).
The default is ``ln03''.
This option displays the list of options known to xdpr.
