7.1.3 Drawing on a Pixmap

The GHOSTVIEW environment variable contains a window id and a pixmap id. They are integers separated by white space. Ghostscript will use the attributes of the window to obtain the colormap, screen, and visual to use. The width and height will be obtained from the pixmap. The remainder of the information, is gotten from the GHOSTVIEW property on the window. In this case, the property is deleted when read.
