XV(l) MachTen Programmer’s Manual XV(l)

xv - interactive image display for the X Window System

xv [options] [filename[filename...]]

The xv program displays images in the GIF, JPEG, TIFF,
PBM, PGM, PPM, X11 bitmap, Utah Raster Toolkit RLE,
PDS/VICAR, Sun Rasterfile, BMP, PCX, IRIS RGB, XPM, Targa,
XWD, possibly PostScript, and PM formats on workstations
and terminals running the X Window System, Version 11.

The documentation for XV is now distributed only as a
PostScript file, as it has gotten enormous, and is no
longer very well suited to the ’man’ page format. Print a
copy of the (100-ish page) manual found in docs/xvdocs.ps.
If you are unable to get the manual to print on your
printer, you may purchase a printed copy of the XV manual.
Click on ’About XV’ in the program to get further informa-

If you don’t have the PostScript file, it is part of the
standard XV distribution, the latest version of which can
be obtained via anonymous ftp from ftp.cis.upenn.edu in
the directory pub/xv
