#2489 closed enhancement (wontfix)

d.out.file: Add PNG/Cairo support

Until now the d.out.file module works only on content from X-Monitors (x0, x1, etc.). It would be great if this could be extended for PNG/Cairo and possibly PS monitors. This would allow to use the module also in pure command line - based environments

This will not change for G6 and for G7 it is an duplicate of #2595 which might be anyway closed as wontfix because the workflow is already possible just using:

d.mon start=cairo output=myfile.png
d.mon stop=cairo

So, using d.out.file for this would be little duplication. On the other hand, d.out.file has some popularity perhaps because it is more explicit.
