rlecat - concatenate and repeat images.
-c ] [
repeat-count ] [
outfile ] [
files ... ]
This program will concatenate all the input
images, adding titles, and
optionally repeating the images a specified number of times.
For each input file, it copies all images to the output file. If an
image does not have a
TITLE comment, and the input is not coming from the standard input, then the
file name (and an image number, if it is not the first image in the
file) is added as a
TITLE comment. If the input file were named images.rle, the first image
would be given a comment
TITLE=images.rle, the second would get a comment
and so on.
-n, specifies that the output images should be "collated". In other
words, the repeat sequence will be 1 2 3 ... 1 2 3 ... instead of the
default of 1 1 ... 2 2 ... 3 3 ...
-n repeat-count |
Specifies that each input image should be repeated
repeat-count times. The "repeat unit" (if
-c is specified, this is the entire concatenated sequence of input
images, otherwise it is just each image, separately) is written to a
temporary file, and then copied to the output the requisite number of
-o outfile |
If specified, the output will be written to this file. If
outfile is "-", or if it is not specified, the output will be written to the
standard output stream.
The input will be read from these files. If
a file name
is "-", or none are specified, the input will be read from the standard
rlebg 128 128 128 | rlecat -n 25
Generates 25 copies of a gray background; useful for using
to put background on an animation sequence (with 25 or fewer frames).
rlecat *.rle | <some processing> | getx11
TITLE comments so the individual images are correctly identified by
rlecat -c -r 3 anim*.rle
Generates an animation with 3 repeats of the action.
rlecat -r 3 anim*.rle
Generates a "triple-framed" animation - each frame is repeated 3

If the /tmp directory is not writable, or if there is not sufficient
space on /tmp to hold a repeat unit, the program will not work
