FD2PS(1L)			 Forms Library			     FD2PS(1L)

NAME
       fd2ps -	Translates fdesign output to PostScript

SYNOPSIS
       fd2ps [-options] input.[fd] [output]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       fd2ps accepts the following command line options

       -help Prints a brief summary of all command line options.

       -version
	     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
	     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.

       -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.

       -verbose
	     This  option specifies verbose output, i.e., comments in the out‐
	     put PostScript file. Most useful for debugging the fd2ps program.
