       gliv - An OpenGL Image Viewer


       gliv [OPTIONS]... [FILES]...


       gliv  uses  gdk-pixbuf  to  load  images and OpenGL to render them.  It
       allows to do some moving, rotating, zooming and slide show.


       The options are first set to their default  values,  "off"  for  flags,
       then  read either from ~/.glivrc or /etc/glivrc or a configuration file
       specified on the command line, and finally read from the command  line.
       Omitting  the  argument  for  an option that takes an "on|off" argument
       (flags) is like giving it "on", so --foo is the same as --foo=on if foo
       is an on|off flag.

       -h, --help
              Print help and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print version and exit.

       -a, --add-all[=on|off]
              Add  all files in the directory. With this option, when you open
              a file on the command line or with the open dialog,  all  others
              files in the directory are added as well.

       -R, --recursive[=on|off]
              Recursive directory traversal. If gliv tries to load a direcory,
              it will also load every image all its subdirectories.

       -S, --sort[=on|off]
              Show images in sorted order. The  images  list  will  be  sorted
              before the slide show.

       -s, --shuffle[=on|off]
              Show  images  in  random order. The images list will be shuffled
              before the slide show.

       -F, --force-load[=on|off]
              Try to load every file. When  loading  a  file,  the  loader  is
              chosen  according to the filename extension in order to optimize
              the loading time. If the  extension  is  unknown,  the  file  is
              ignored, with this option gliv will always try to load the file.

       -C, --client[=on|off]
              Connect to an already running gliv. With this option, gliv  will
              open  the  files  passed  in  the  arguments  in the gliv server
              window. It can also be used with the -0 option. The gliv  server
              is  the  latest  launched  gliv or the one which has been chosen
              using the Options menu.

       -e, --build-menus[=on|off]
              No images menu at startup. Disabling the images  menus  creation
              at  startup  makes  it faster, especially with many files on the
              command line.

       -g, --glivrc[=FILE]
              Use this configuration file  or  none.  Specify  it  to  disable
              loading  of the rc file. With a filename as argument it will use
              it as a configuration file.

       -w, --slide-show[=on|off]
              Start the slide show immediately. This way you will not have  to
              start it manually from the menu.

       -0, --null[=on|off]
              Read  null-terminated  filenames.  This  can  be used with "find
              -print0" or with "tr ā€™\nā€™ ā€™\0ā€™" when you have a very  long  list
              of  filenames  to  pass  to  gliv.  Unlike xargs(1) it allows an
              unlimited number of filenames.

       -o, --collection[=FILE]
              Output a collection. With this option, gliv creates a collection
              from  the  loaded  files  and  outputs  it  to  stdout or in the
              specified file.

       -G, --geometry=GEOMETRY
              Initial window geometry. This option can be used to specify  the
              position and dimension of the gliv window. It expects a geometry
              argument in the XParseGeometry(3X11) format like:  640x480+20-30
              for example.


       Starting  with  version  1.8,  gliv supports a file format called "GLiv
       collection". It contains an images list and the associated  thumbnails,
       this  way,  when  you  load a collection the images menus rebuilding is
       faster since it does not have to make thumbnails.
       gliv supports also transparent decompression, so the collections can be
       compressed  in  bzip2,  gzip or compress(1) provided that  you have the
       corresponding decompressor.

       z      : Horizontal flip
       e      : Vertical flip

       The first mouse button and the arrow keys will move  the  image  unless
       the  Control  key  is  pressed. In which case the image will be rotated
       around the window center.

       Your mouse wheel (if supported) will zoom the image and switch it  when
       you press the button.

       You  can also zoom by dragging the mouse vertically while holding Shift
       and the first button.

       Space and Backspace act like n and p.

       Draw a rectangle with the third button and gliv will zoom in it.
