dpsexec - Display PostScript Executive
dpsexecis a Display PostScript program thatallows the user to interact directly with the PostScript interpreter through a command interface. dpsexec reads lines of text from standard input and passes each line tothe PostScript interpreter for execution.It creates a window that displays the results of graphics operations asthey are executed.dpsexecexits when end of file is reached on standard input, or whenthe user types "quit<return>", which executesthe PostScript quitoperator.
By default,dpsexecexecutes the PostScriptexecutiveoperator before it accepts any user input.This operator puts the PostScript interpreter in "interactiveexecutive" mode so that the user can control the interpreterdirectly. In this mode, the PostScript interpreter supports certain line-editing functions and prompts the user when it is ready to execute more input.See section 2.4.4, "Using the Interpreter Interactively,"of the PostScript Language Reference Manual, Second Edition,for detailed information on this mode of operation.
