SYNOPSIS

cave [ -hvSsqd ] [ -f fps ] [ -c cue ] [ -r regex ] [ -t seconds ] file ...

DESCRIPTION

cave is an acronym for Character Animation Viewer for Everyone. It plays ascii character animations with an curses(3) interface. cave tries to determine the location of the frame deliminator automatically (top or bottom of the frame). Files compressed with gzip(1) are supported.

OPTIONS

-f fps Initial frames-per-second. The default is 15.
-c cue Skip this many frames when using the cue keys. The default is 8.
-r regex
  An alternate extended regular expression used to specify a frame deliminator. See REGEX EXAMPLES below.
-d Make a specified frame deliminator a value for a frame delay. This is the default if no alternate frame delay is specified.
-s Go directly into screensaver mode on startup cycling through multiple files.
-S Go directly into screensaver mode shuffling the order of files if more than one file is specified.
-q When in screensaver mode, quit after a keypress.
-t seconds
  When in screensaver mode, if an animations length is less than this amount of seconds then it will loop until it is reached. The default is 30. Note that this only works when more than one file is specified.
-h Program help text.
-v Version and copyright information.

REGEX EXAMPLES

  Match a line beginning (^) with at least one (+) digit ([0-9]) with zero or more (*) trailing whitespace characters until end-of-line ($). This is the default and is used for frame delays.
^,$ Match a line beginning with a comma immediately followed by end-of-line.
