       By  default, the	image format of	`file' is determined by	its magic num-
       ber.  To	specify	a particular image format, precede the	filename  with
       an  image  format name and a colon (i.e.	ps:image) or specify the image
       type as the filename suffix (i.e.  Specify 'file' as '-' for
       standard	input or output.

	 2    press and	drag to	magnify	a region of an image
	 3    press to load an image from a visual image directory

       The  display  program  defaults to the X	screen resolution.  To display
       vector formats at their intended	size, override the default resolution:

	 display -density 72 drawing.svg
