FD2PS(1L) Forms Library FD2PS(1L)NAMEfd2ps - Translates fdesign output to PostScript
SYNOPSISfd2ps [-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.
OPTIONSfd2ps 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 orien‐
tation is switched to landscape if portrait will not fit the
page. This option overrides the default.
-l This options requests landscape output.
-bw n Specifies the border width of the interface. By default this
information is obtained from the .fd file.
-eps This option requests Encapsulated PostScript instead of the plain
-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 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 out‐
put PostScript file. Most useful for debugging the fd2ps program.
Not all objects are currently supported.
