NAME

xv - interactive image display for the X Window System  

SYNTAX

xv [options] [filename[filename...]]  

DESCRIPTION

The xv program displays images on workstations and terminals running the X Window System, Version 11. Supported image formats include PBM, PGM, PPM, X11 bitmap, XWD, XPM, Utah Raster Toolkit RLE, PDS/VICAR, FITS, Sun Rasterfile, GIF, PCX, Targa/TGA, BMP, WBMP, IRIS RGB, Spectrum SCREEN$, PM, and optionally PNG, JPEG, JPEG 2000, JP2, TIFF, PostScript, PDF, G3 fax, MAG, PIC, MAKI (640x400), PI, and PIC2.

Aside from the usage screen (available by typing 'xv -help' at the command line), documentation for XV is now distributed only as a PostScript (or PDF) file, as it has gotten enormous and is no longer very well suited to the 'man' page format. Print a copy of the (100-ish page) manual found in docs/xvdocs.ps. If you are unable to get the manual to print on your printer, you may purchase a printed copy of the XV manual. Click on 'About XV' in the program to get further information.

If you don't have the PostScript file, it is part of the standard XV distribution, the latest version of which can be obtained from http://www.trilon.com/xv/ or via anonymous ftp from ftp.cis.upenn.edu in the directory pub/xv .

This version has been patched with the XV Jumbo Patches, available from http://pobox.com/~newt/greg_xv.
