The easiest way to use ttyload is just to invoke the command, with no additional options.
Additional options are described below.
To quit ttyload, enter the terminals interrupt character (typically control-C).
ttyload uses standard getopt() style options processing. Available options are:
-h Display a brief usage statement ("help"). -v show version info, then exit -m monochrome mode (no ANSI escapes) -c <cols> Sets the number of columns wide to make the display -r <rows> Sets the number of rows high to make the display (these two options combine to override the default behavior of auto-determining screen size) -i <seconds> Alter the number of seconds in the interval between refreshes. The default is 4, and the minimum is 1, which is silently clamped.
This man page is current for version 0.5 of ttyload
Thanks to several my friends for testing things out on various platforms, or lending me accounts on their machines upon which to do porting.
