> I would like to print images from geomview, is it possible ? and how ?

Yes, though you'll do it differently depending on which version of geomview
you have -- for the SGI, NeXT, or for X.

It's easiest on the SGI.  Press the Save button on the Tools panel
(or press the > key in a graphics window).  On the Save panel, scroll down to
"SGI Snapshot".  Type a file name in the panel's long input field.  When
you press Return, the camera window will be saved in SGI image format.
To print its contents on a Postscript printer, use SGI's /usr/sbin/tops command
as in
   tops yourimage.sgi | lp

On the NeXT, geomview can't save its own windows as images, but you can
use /NextApps/Grab.app to save a window as a TIFF image, or paste it into
an Edit document, for example.

Under X, again geomview can't save images of its windows, but you could
use xwd (X window dump):

   xwd > yourimage.xwd
	(and click on the appropriate camera window when xwd changes the
	 cursor to a crosshair)

   xpr -device ps -gray 4   yourimage.xwd  | lpr

Hint: white backgrounds tend to look best when printed.
