           Summary: Support rendering a part (subrectangle) of a document
           Product: Ghostscript
           Version: 8.71
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P4
         Component: General

For my postscript-viewer I need to render part (the visible rectangle) of a
into a .png-file.

Zooming works fine, but so far I can only render the whole page.
Rendering only the interesting rectangle would speed things up
(maybe not the rendering but my image loading code).

Is that already possible (I spent hours searching the docs)?
Could that possibility be added?

When rendering to the x11 device, one can communicate the "bounding box"(?)
vie X11-atoms and thus restrict the rendered part.
Using png12m as output device this does not work. (Moreover a
commandline switch would be way more convenient than having to code X11 calls.)

Short version:
gs -dSAFER -dQUIET -sDEVICE=png16m -sOutputFile=/tmp/x.png
   -r96x96 -dTextAlphaBits=4 -dGraphicsAlphaBits=4
be augmented by some options (or environment variable) such that
/tmp/x.png contains not the whole page but only a subrectangle?
I am thinking of something like a (new?) option:
that allows to specify the rectangle that should be contained
in the output file.
