Calling Sequence



  IDL> PrintWindow, wid
  OPTIONAL POSITIONAL PARAMETERS:
  WID The window index number of the window to send to the
            printer. !D.Window used by default.

Keyword Parameters



  LANDSCAPE If this keyword is set, the output is in Landscape
              mode. Otherwise, Portrait mode is used.
  PAGESIZE: Set this keyword to a string indicating the type
            of PostScript page size you want. Current values are "LETTER",
            "LEGAL", and "A4". Default is "LETTER".
  RGB_ERROR: Some printers (particularly attached to LINUX machines) cannot
              load a 24-bit image. You get this error message:
                %Can't set RGB color on an indexed destination.
              If this happens to you, set this keyword and the 24-bit image will
              be made into a 2D image with color table vectors. Colors are not
              quaranteed to be accurate with this method, but in practice it is
              not usually too bad.
              IDL> PrintWindow, /RGB_Error
