       spinner - Sends small packets over a idle link


       spinner [options]


       Spinner  is  an anti-idle program that displays a little "spinning" ASCII character in the
       top left corner of your terminal.  spinner is useful for keeping telnet and ssh links from
       dropping  due  to inactivity. Many firewalls, and some ISPs drop connections when they are
       perceived as idle. By having spinner running the  server  is  constantly  sending  a  tiny
       amount of data over the link, preserving the connection.
