       aemakeflic - produce an animation from an aewan document


       aemakeflic   [-f   {less|sh}]   [-N]   [-b]   [-d   <delay>]


       This utility will make an ascii animation out of an aewan document.  It
       can  currently  produce animations in two formats: a shellscript which,
       when executed, will display the animation and a "less  movie"  intended
       to  be "played" on the very popular ’less’ output pager -- that is, the
       user will see the animation as he pages down through  the  file  in  an
       appropriate window size.

       Each  layer  in  the  aewan document is interpreted as one frame of the
       animation.  Layer transparency and compositing are not used: each layer
       becomes a frame.


       -f     specifies  output  format - can "sh" for a shellscript or "less"
              for a "less movie"

       -N     omit the initial instructions that are normally included in  the
              resulting  file. The instructions will orient the user as to how
              to play the file.

       -b     disables output of color (only characters will be printed).

       -d delay
              specifies the delay between frames (for shellscript only), given
              in milliseconds.
