PAGE(1) PAGE(1) NAME page - view FAX, bitmap, and PostScript files SYNOPSIS page file ... DESCRIPTION Page reads each file, either a CCITT Group 3 encoded file (such as a FAX page), Plan 9 bitmap file (see bitmap(6)), or PostScript in sequence and displays it in its window. Pressing and holding button 1 permits panning about the page. Typing a q or control-D exits the program. Typing any other character or clicking button 2 advances to the next file. Button 3 has a menu of the files to be selected for viewing in any order. When possible, page overlaps the read of the next page with the display of the current one. Page calls gs(1) to convert PostScript files to Group 3 encoded files. All are converted before any pages are dis- played. The menu then displays one line for each page of the documents. FILES /lib/nyt/* New York Times FAX files, updated daily. SEE ALSO gs(1) SOURCE /sys/src/cmd/page DIAGNOSTICS The mouse cursor changes to an arrow and ellipsis when page is reading a file. BUGS Page is written in ALEF and therefore has binaries only for MIPS, SPARC, and i386 machines. If any of the files are PostScript, they all must be.
