7.2.106 rib-display

(rib-display [frame|tiff] FILEPREFIX)
Set Renderman display to framebuffer (popup screen window) or a TIFF format disk file. FILEPREFIX is used to construct names of the form prefixNNNN.suffix. (i.e. foo0000.rib) The number is incremented on every call to rib-snapshot and reset to 0000 when rib-display is called. TIFF files are given the same prefix and number as the RIB file (i.e. foo0004.rib generates foo0004.tiff). The default FILEPREFIX is geom and the default format is TIFF. (Note that geomview just generates a RIB file, which must then be rendered.)
