DESCRIPTION

-x driver
  Gives the name of the device driver to be used to communicate with the display device. The default is "hp98721".

AUTHOR

John W. Peterson, University of Utah, with input from Filippo Tampieri of Cornell and Eric Haines of 3D/Eye.

BUGS

The program assumes a full 24 bit Renaissance display. The HP graphics library supports automatically dithering for displays with fewer bitplanes, but getren ignores this.
The device and driver names are compiled in as "/dev/hp98721" and "hp98721", respectively. This may need changing on systems configured differently (in particular, systems with the Renaissance as their sole display may use a different name for the device).
