bmv - A PostScript viewer for SVGAlib


bmv [options] file


This manual page documents briefly the bmv command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

bmv is a front end for GhostScript intended for viewing PS files. Using BMV you can now preview your PostScript files comfortably. You can also use it for viewing rawPBM image files. It uses SVGAlib and it is intended for Linux users who cannot run X. It is particularly suitable for previewing PS files from dvips. It is small and fast.

While you are viewing picture you can use the following keys (some keybindings only work within the patched Debian version of bmv):

To move left/down/up/right. Alternatively the arrow keys can be used.
To move to the boundary
To increase/decrease step size
To increase/decrease magnification
To go to the next/previous page (only DSC documents). Alternatively the PgUp and PgDown keys can be used. Numeric prefixes are possible, thus typing '12 <PgDown>' goes down 12 pages.
To go to the first/last/page (only DSC documents). Alternatively the Pos1 and End keys can be used.
To rotate the image 90 degrees clockwise.
To go to page number <n>, <n> consists of exactly 3 digits
To switch to virtual console <n>, <n> is a digit
To quit


A summary of options is included below:
VGA mode number for VGAlib. Examples:

        bmv -v4          # 640x480x16
        bmv -v11         # 800x600x256
        bmv -v12         # 1024x768x256

for a full list of VGA modes, see also /usr/include/vga.h in the libsvga1-dev package.
