PROOF(9.1) PROOF(9.1) NAME proof - troff output interpreter for jerq SYNOPSIS proof [ -ffonts ] [ file ] DESCRIPTION Proof reads troff(1) intermediate language output from file and displays a simulation of the resulting pages on the screen. If no file name is given and the standard input is the terminal, proof terminates immediately leaving a `proof layer', otherwise it reads the standard input. By invoking proof in a proof layer you can avoid download time. Fonts are loaded as required. The default font is used for unknown fonts. The font option can be used to preload fonts. Use the names of the fonts relative to /usr/jerq/font separated by commas. The most-used fonts are `-fR.10,I.10,S.10'. After a layer's worth of text is displayed, proof pauses for a command. Commands may come from the host, the keyboard, or the button 3 menu. The typed versions of commands are: <newline> Go on to next portion of text. (Button 3 equivalent: `more'.) q Quit, leaving a proof layer. x Exit and restart the regular terminal program. (Equiv- alent to `q' followed by jterm(9.1).) pn Print page n. An out-of-bounds page number means the end nearer to that number; a missing number means page 0; a signed number means an offset to the current page. Button 1 gets a scroll box, which represents a full page of text. An interior rectangle shows what part of the page is now visible. The interior rectangle moves with the mouse, causing the layer to scroll both vertically and horizon- tally. Button 2 gets a speedometer. The bar of the speedometer moves with the mouse to control the rate at which new information is displayed.

Kernighan BUGS There is a maximum number of fonts (currently 50) that can be loaded at once. Windowing can get confused if the troff ouput is not approx- imately sorted in ascending y-order. A proof layer imitates term 33(9.1), not mux(9.1).
