NAME

ps - Temporarily attaches the Postscript display manager and outputs the current MGED display to the specified output_file in PostScript format.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

ps [-f font] [-t title] [-c creator] [-s size_in_inches] [-l line_width] {output_file}

DESCRIPTION

Temporarily attaches the Postscript display manager and outputs the current MGED display to the specified output_file in PostScript format. The -f option allows the font to be user- specified. The -t option allows the user to provide a title (the default is “No Title”). The -c option allows the user to specify the creator of the file (the default is “LIBDM dm-ps”). The –s specifies the size of the drawing in inches. The –l specifies the width of the lines drawn.

EXAMPLES

The first example shows the use of the ps command to place a PostScript version of the current MGED display in a specified file and give it a particular title. The second example is much like the first except that a line width is specified and the title and output file names are different.

Example 1. Place a PostScript version of the current MGED display in a specified file.

mged>ps -t "Test Title" test.ps

Places a PostScript version of the current MGED display in a file named test.ps and titles it “Test Title.”

Example 2. Specify the line width of a PostScript version of the current MGED display in a specified file.

mged>ps -l 10 -t "Test Fat Lines" fat_lines.ps

Places a PostScript version of the current MGED display with fat lines in a file named fat_lines.ps and titles it “Test Fat Lines.”
