gifviews command line consists of GIF input files and options. Most options start with a dash (-) or plus (+); frame selections, a kind of option, start with a number sign (#). Anything else is a GIF input file.
gifview displays one window for each GIF input file you specify. If no GIF input file is given, or you give the special filename -, it reads from the standard input.
--animate, -a Animate multi-image GIFs by default. Normally, multi-image GIFs first appear in slideshow mode. You can always use the a keystroke to toggle between modes. This option has a converse, --no-animate or +a.
--unoptimize, -U Display multi-image GIFs as unoptimized, which shows a faithful representation of what a user will see at each frame of an animation. See gifsicle(1) for a more detailed description of unoptimization. This option has a converse, --no-unoptimize or +U. GIFs are always displayed unoptimized in animation mode.
Sets the X display to display. This option must come before any GIF files.
--name name Sets the application name under which resources are found, rather than the default of "gifview". Since gifview itself does not use the resource database, this is mostly useful for communication with your window manager.
--geometry geometry Set the size and position of gifviews windows. This is a standard X option. At most one --geometry option can be given per window (that is, per input GIF file).
--title title Sets the gifview windows title. The default is "gifview", followed by information about the currently displayed file and frame.
Display the next GIF input in an existing X window, instead of making a new top-level window. This way, you can use gifview to display animated GIFs in a window you created with another program. The window argument should be an integer (gifview will use that window ID) or root (gifview will use the root window).
--new-window window Display the next GIF input in a new child of an existing X window. This child window will disappear when gifview exits. The window argument should be an integer (gifview will use that window ID) or root (gifview will use the root window).
--install-colormap, -i Use a private colormap for each window (if you are using a PseudoColor display). This avoids polluting the existing colormap, and may produce better results if your colormap is full, but causes annoying colormap flashing.
Set the background color, which is used for transparent pixels.
--min-delay delay Set the minimum delay between frames to delay, which is measured in hundredths of a second. Default is 0.
--fallback-delay delay Set the frame delay of GIFs that do not specify a delay value or have a delay of 0. The final value is still subject to the value of --min-delay. Like --min-delay, delay is measured in hundredths of a second. Default is 0.
--no-interactive, +e Dont pay attention to mouse buttons or keystrokes.
--memory-limitlim Cache at most lim megabytes of images in memory when animating. Default is 40.
--help Print usage information and exit.
--version Print the version number and some quickie warranty information and exit.
A frame selection tells gifview which frame to initially display from the current input file. They are useful only for animations, as non-animated GIFs only have one frame. Frame selections can only be displayed in slideshow mode.
If you give two or more frame selections, you will get one window per frame selection.
#num Select frame num. (The first frame is #0. Negative numbers count backwards from the last frame, which is #-1.) #name Select the frame named name.
