HARD(1) TIPSY COMMANDS HARD(1)
hard - make an X window dump (and send it to the printer)
hard redraws the current plot full screen size and writes
a xwd format file of the image into the file filename so
that it can be sent to a color printer or displayed again
later. The image is written when any mouse button is
pressed. Carefully center the image on the screen before
pressing a mouse button because what you see is what you
get. If nothing is currently plotted an error will be
generated. There are a few special filenames that cause
the command to behave slightly differently.
If the filename is ``print'' no file is written but
instead a postscript file is sent to the default printer
to be printed in black and white.
If the filename is ``colorprint'' no file is written but
instead a color postscript file is sent to the default
printer to be printed in color.
If the filename is ``photo'' no file is written and the
image remains on the screen until a button is pressed.
This command is useful when taking pictures of the images.
If the filename is ``movie'' a file is written to file
filename that contains the image in the current window but
with the same size as the current window. Also, the com-
mand does not wait for a mouse button to be pressed to
write the file. It is important to make certain that the
entire view area is uncovered when using this option
because what you see is what you get. This command is
useful for making movies.
If the filename is ``dump'' an image is written to the
file filename. The image contains the contents of the
backing pixmap which tipsy uses to refresh the current
window. This is useful if the window is larger than the
framepoints(1), xypoints(1), xyzpoints(1)
