When I use
display from command line, say:
$ display -density 150 test1.pdf
display locks in the command line, until you exit the window (or press CTRL+C in terminal).
However, what I'd like to do, is when the above command is ran in terminal, then
display would both start the window, and at the same time exit; then I could quickly press up arrow in terminal, and edit the settings (like
-density), and repeat the now modified command line - which would likewise now exit, and the window would show the newly requested image.
This is similar to how
scite has a "single instance mode" (see How to load new documents in a single instance of SciTE): when it is set up, you can say
scite filename on the command line;
scite then exits in terminal - while it opens the file as new tab (so you can quickly open files on command line by using
bash history and up arrow). Now, I wouldn't expect
display's GUI to have tabs, but I think it should be possible to somehow have
display's window replace the content it displays upon a command...
Is what I want possible with
display - and if so, how?
Many thanks in advance for any answers,
