GIST(1)                                                   GIST(1)

NAME
       gist
GIST(1)

NAME
       gist

SYNOPSIS
       gist [[ -in ] cgmfile ] [ page-number-list ] [ options ]

DESCRIPTION
       Gist is a binary CGM (Computer Graphics Metafile) browser.
       It reads an input cgmfile and produces  output  to  the  X
       window  system,  PostScript  files  (which  can be printed
       using lpr(1)), or another binary CGM  file.   The  cgmfile
       may  be  a family of CGMs; a family is recognized whenever
       the final one or two characters of the filenames  (exclud­
       ing an optional trailing ".cgm") are digits in a numerical
       sequence (e.g.- myfile00.cgm, myfile01.cgm,  myfile02.cgm,
       etc.).   In  this case, the cgmfile argument should be the
       name of the first file in the family; gist will  automati­
       cally  hop  back and forth from file to file as necessary.
       (A single page must not be split across  files,  and  each
       file  must  be  a  legal CGM in its own right.)  When gist
       opens a CGM for input, it must catalog the  pages  in  the
       file by scanning through the file to find them.  This cat­
       aloguing operation takes place  in  the  background  while
       gist waits for your input.  Therefore, if you open a large
       family of CGMs, gist will be able to display the first few
       pages  immediately, but if you ask for the last few pages,
       you will have to  wait  until  the  catalog  is  complete.
       After gist has catalogued the input family, you can render
       any page without delay.
