;; The GHOSTVIEW property (taken from gv 3.5.8).
;; Type:
;; Parameters:
;; Scanf format: "%d %d %d %d %d %d %f %f %d %d %d %d"
;; Explanation of parameters:
;; BPIXMAP: pixmap id of the backing pixmap for the window.  If no
;; pixmap is to be used, this parameter should be zero.  This
;; parameter must be zero when drawing on a pixmap.
;; ORIENT: orientation of the page.  The number represents clockwise
;; rotation of the paper in degrees.  Permitted values are 0, 90, 180,
;; 270.
;; LLX, LLY, URX, URY: Bounding box of the drawable.  The bounding box
;; is specified in PostScript points in default user coordinates.
;; XDPI, YDPI: Resolution of window.  (This can be derived from the
;; other parameters, but not without roundoff error.  These values are
;; included to avoid this error.)
;; LEFT, BOTTOM, TOP, RIGHT: (optional) Margins around the window.
;; The margins extend the imageable area beyond the boundaries of the
;; window.  This is primarily used for popup zoom windows.  I have
;; encountered several instances of PostScript programs that position
;; themselves with respect to the imageable area.  The margins are
;; specified in PostScript points.  If omitted, the margins are
;; assumed to be 0.
