XV is a program to view, modify, and change formats of images.
xv help index:
XV is available on all HP, DEC, and SGI Unix workstations.
The xv command itself is available without setup, but to use any other utilities or view the man pages, you must perform a setup step.
XV uses standard setup scripts. The application name is "xv" and this version is "xv-3.10" (See "helpme setup" for instructions.)
xv [ <filename> ]
If you do not specify a filename, you will have to click the title screen with the right mouse button to get main screen.
Click on the print button on the main screen, enter a valid print command for a PostScript printer, and click on the Color button. You should generally use the Color button even with black-and-white printers, because it usually produces a clearer image.
- You can capture a screen image by selecting Grab from the main screen and following the instructions in the window that appears.
- The XV manual is available in PostScript form in
/opt/xv-3.10/manual.ps. Do not print the manual. The manual may be viewed with ghostview.
