       Termsaver - A simple text-based terminal screensaver


       termsaver [SCREEN] [OPTIONS]


       Termsaver  is a simple alternative for simulating command-line based screensavers right on
       the terminal, in text-based format.

       To start the screensaver, execute Termsaver command with proper options  as  described  in
       detail  below, and to close it, just use the standard Ctrl+C to interrupt it (or close the
       terminal window if you are on a desktop environment and no longer need it).


       The Termsaver application,  to  work  properly,  requires  a  screen  as  argument,  which
       represents  the  name of the screensaver to be loaded. Each screen, in turn, will have its
       own set of optional arguments, documented in its help option.

       Here follows a list of currently available  screens  (note  that  this  information  might
       become  outdated  if  updates  are  not  fully documented here, so always rely on the help
       option to display all screens available):

              displays recent quotes from

              displays ascii images from (NSFW)

              displays rss feed information

       clock  displays a digital clock on screen

              displays word in random places on screen

       rfc    randomly displays RFC contents

              displays source code in typing animation
