       Virtual machine for compact low-level audiovisual programs

       IBNIZ  is a virtual machine designed for extremely compact low-level audiovisual programs.
       The leading design goal is usefulness as a platform for demoscene productions, glitch  art
       and  similar  projects.   Mainsteam  software  engineering  aspects are considered totally

       IBNIZ stands for Ideally Bare Numeric Impression giZmo. The name also refers to  Gottfried
       Leibniz,  the  17th-century polymath who, among all, invented binary arithmetic, built the
       first four-operation calculating machine, and believed that the world  was  designed  with
       the principle that a minimal set of rules should yield a maximal diversity.

       The  IBNIZ  virtual  machine  is  basically  a two-stack machine somewhat similar to Forth
       implementations but with the major difference that the stack is cyclical and also used  as
       output  buffer.  The  machine  runs  in  an endless loop by default, with the loop counter
       variable(s) pushed on top of the stack on every loop cycle.

       Each instruction is one character long, with the exception of 'loadimm' which consists  of
       a  string  of  hexadecimal  digits.  This  also  gives  IBNIZ  some  flavor of an esoteric
       programming language.


              Read configuration settings from <file>, if it exists.

       --version, -V
              Show this program's version number and exit.

       --help, -h
              Show this help message and exit.

       And a lot more standard docutils options.


       -h     Dump help on command line usage

       -v     Dump version info

       -c CODE
              Execute code

       -n     No autorun of loaded code

       The following extra options were added for creating the YouTube video:

       -e     Dump user keystrokes to stdout

       -p     Playback dumped user keystrokes from stdin

       -M     Dump raw video to stdout and raw audio to stderr, 30 fps,  non-realtime,  yuv4mpeg2
              and pcm_s16


       Some commands used in this process, for reference:

       ./ibniz -e > events

       ./ibniz -M -p < events 2>vid.pcm | ffmpeg -y -i - -r 30 vid.avi

       ffmpeg -i vid.avi -f s16le -ar 44100 -ac 1 -i vid.pcm -vcodec copy vidav.avi
