aaflip - An ASCII art video player
aaflip [-abcfv] [-n number] [-s delay]
aaflip is an ASCII art video player which supports the fli and flc
fli files are limited to a resolution of 320x200 pixel, while flc files
can have any resolution.
The default method of playing is to load the first frame of the
animation sequence and display it. After this the remainder of the file
is loaded into memory, and the animation starts. The animation ends
when q or ctrl-c is pressed.
-a Remove frames from memory after processing. Using this option
leaves more memory for other processes, but relies on the buffer
cache for continuous animation.
-b Process frames immediately as they are loaded. When using this
option the animation frames are shown as soon as the player has
read them, so you don’t have to wait until the entire file has
been read. The disadvantage is that the animation becomes jumpy
if the speed set by the animation is higher than the speed of
-c Keep the screen black while loading the animation. This
conflicts with option -b, which can give interesting results.
-f Switch off clock synchronization. Animation will run as fast as
-v Show information on flic file.
Play the animation sequence number times.
Set delay between frames to delay milliseconds. Option -s 0 is
the same as -f.
