aview - A high quality ASCII art image viewer


aview [options] filename.p[ngbp]m
asciiview [options] filename.xxx


This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original
program does not have a manual page.

aview/asciiview is an image viewer which displays the images in ASCII art...

aview supports zooming/unzooming, three dithering modes, inversion, contrast, brightness,
gamma control and can save into many formats (html, text, ansi, more/less etc.).

aview can only show files in the PNM file format. But asciiview automatically converts the
file formats to PNM (with extern programs like NetPBM and ImageMagic) and then runs aview.

It supports the usual aalib drivers (e.g. slang, x11 and stdout) as well as the
mousedrivers X11 and gpm.
