fimgs - poor man’s [http://]PostScript/pdf/dvi/cbr/rar/cbz/zip viewer
for the linux framebuffer console
fimgs [ options ] file
fimgs is a simple wrapper script which takes a PostScript or pdf or
.cbr or .rar or .cbz or .zip or .dvi or any of the above prefixed with
http:// as input, renders the pages using ghostscript into a
temporarely directory and finally calls fbi to display them. In case
of compressed archives (in zip or rar formats), the images are
decompressed into a directory and displayed. In this latter case, only
images contained in the archive will be displayed (no nested archives
or pdf’s or ps’s or dvi’s).
fimgs still does not understand all of fim’s options (they are not
passed through). so please use fimgs -h to get help on its options.
You can use option -p <password> if your PDF file requires password.
