cacaview - ASCII image browser
cacaview is a lightweight text mode image viewer. It renders images
using colour ASCII characters. It is a powerful add-on to famous
console programs such as the mutt email client, the slrn newsreader and
the links or w3m web browsers.
cacaview can load the most widespread image formats: PNG, JPEG, GIF,
PNG, BMP etc.
You can zoom and scroll the image around for more details, and choose
four different dithering modes. All commands are accessible through a
single key press.
? show the help screen
n, p switch to next image, previous image
Left, Right, Up, Down or h, l, k, j
scroll the image around
+, - zoom in and out
z reset the zoom level to normal
f switch fullscreen mode (hide/show menu and status bars)
d toggle the dithering mode (no dithering, 4x4 ordered dithering,
8x8 ordered dithering and random dithering)
q exit the program
There is no support for aspect ratio yet. Also, since there is no way
yet to load an image from cacaview it is completely useless when run
without an argument.
