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 into
PostScript (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.
fd2ps accepts the following command line options
-help Prints a brief summary of all command line options.
Prints the current version of fd2ps and exits.
-p The option requests portrait orientation. By default,
the orientation is switched to landscape if portrait
will not fit the page. This option overrides the
-l This options requests landscape output.
-bw n Specifies the border width of the interface. By
default this information is obtained from the .fd
-eps This option requests Encapsulated PostScript instead
of the plain PostScript output.
-gray This options requests all colors be converted to gray
levels. By default, fd2ps outputs colors as specified
in the .fd file.
-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.
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.
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.
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
-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 program.
