EXTENDED ESCAPES FOR TERMINOLOGY:

[nbsp;33][}][COMMAND][nbsp;00]
  i.e.
1. ESC char (\033 or 0x1b)
2. } char
3... sequence of UTF8 chars other than nul (\000 or 0x00).
4 \000 char (nul byte or 0x00 to indicate end of sequence) e.g.
echo -n ’\033}Hello world\000’

Commands:

any values inside square brackets [] are to be replaced by some content (numbers, strings, paths, url’s etc.). example:

aa[PATH-OF-FILE] should be come something like:
aa/tmp/file.png or aa[true/false] should become something like:
aatrue or
aafalse

---

pn[FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
popup the given media file/url now

pq[FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
quque a popup for the given media file/url

bt[FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
set the terminal background media file/url temporarily

bp[FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
set the terminal background media file/url permanently

at[on/true/yes/off/false/no]
set the terminal alpha state to be on, or off temporarily

ap[on/true/yes/off/false/no]
set the terminal alpha state to be on, or off permanently

qs
query grid and font size. stdin will have written to it:
W;H;FW;FH
where W is the width of the terminal grid in characters
where H is the height of the terminal grid in characters
where FW is the width of 1 character cell in pixels
where FH is the height of 1 character cell in pixels

is[CW;H;FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
insert STRETCHED media (where image will stretch to fill the
cell area) and define expected cell area to be W cells
wide and H cells high, with the image/media/url.
where C is the replace character to be identified in later
text where W is the width in character cells (up to 511).
where H is the height in character cells (up to 511).

note that this escape alone has no effect. it indicates a future intention of inserting media into the terminal. the terminal will EXPECT a grid of WxH "replace characters" to follow, with each sequence of such replace characters bebung with a ib escape command and ending with an ie escape command.

the FULL-PATH-OR-URL for all the i commands (is,
ic, if, it) may be of the form:

/full/path/to/file.png

OR

/full/path/to/link0full/path/to/file.png

where a newline character separates a URI for a link and
a full path to a file to display in the region. the link
is the destination URI when a user may clikc on the given
media image.

example:

printf("nbsp;33}is#5;3;%s 00"
"nbsp;33}ib#####nbsp;33}ie\0
"nbsp;33}ib#####nbsp;33}ie\0
"nbsp;33}ib#####nbsp;33}ie\0, "/tmp/icon.png");

note that # is the replace character, and later # chars if inside begin/end escapes, will be replaced by the given media indicated in the insert media escape.

ic[CW;H;FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
insert CENTERED media (centered in cell area). otherwise
paramaters are identical to the is command, but
retains aspect and is padded by blank space.

if[CW;H;FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
insert FILLED media (fill in cell area). otherwise paramaters
are identical to the is command but ensures the entire
area is filled like a background even if media goes beyond
cell bounds and is clipped.

it[CW;H;FULL-PATH-OR-URL]
insert THUMB media (thumbnail cell area). otherwise paramaters
are identical to the is command, but uses thumbnail
generation to make a fast to load but low resolution version
(cached) of the media.

ib
begin media replace sequence run

ie
end media replace sequence run
