showpicture(1)                                     showpicture(1)

NAME
       showpicture - View an image received in the mail

SYNOPSIS
       showpicture  [-viewer program-name] file-name(s)

DESCRIPTION
       The  showpicture  program will allow a user on a properly-
       equipped workstation to view a picture using the  xloadim-
       age(1)  program.  It is intended to be called from mailcap
       files, typically by the metamail(1) program.

       By default, the program used to display pictures under X11
       is  "xloadimage -view -quiet -geometry +1+1".  This can be
       overridden either by the environment variable X_VIEWER  or
       by the -viewer command line option.

SEE ALSO
       metamail(1)

BUGS
       Doesn't do much if you're not running X11.
