xmag - magnify parts of the screen
program allows you to magnify portions of an X screen. If no
explicit region is specified, a square with the pointer in the upper left
corner is displayed indicating the area to be enlarged. The area can be
dragged out to the desired size by pressing Button 2. Once a region has
been selected, a window is popped up showing a blown up version of the region
in which each pixel in the source image is represented by a small square of
the same color. Pressing Button1 in the enlargement window
shows the position and RGB value
of the pixel under the pointer until the button is released. Typing ``Q''
or ``^C'' in the enlargement window exits the program. The application has
5 buttons across its top.
