fbserv — Frame-buffer Server
fbserv [ -s |
square_size ] [ -w |
width ] [ -n |
height ] [-p
frame_buffer] [-v] [
opens a framebuffer that may be used by any BRL-CAD routine accessing a framebuffer.
option specifies that a square framebuffer of the specified size (in pixels) is desired. The
option indicates the framebuffer height.
option indicates the framebuffer width.
option (verbosity) yields more information about the current process.
option supplies a port number and the
option indicates what framebuffer device to use.
The framebuffer device may be included on the command line without the
option if it is the last token on the command line. The port number may
also be specified without the
option. If options
are both omitted, the port number must be followed by the framebuffer
device on the command line. While
is running, its port number may then be used in other commands
that access a framebuffer by supplying that port number with the
option for that command. The
command may be executed by users at a shell prompt, or it may be used as
an inetd remote framebuffer server by specifying
as a server program in
fbserv 0 &
This command will start a standalone fbserv daemon. Any access of a framebuffer specifying port 0 will result in opening a new framebuffer.
fbserv -s 1024 0 /dev/sgil &
The above command will open a 1024 X 1024 '/dev/sgil' framebuffer and associate port number 0 with it. Any access of a framebuffer specifying port 0 will use the already opened '/dev/sgil' framebuffer.
