NAME

     ansilove — ANSI / ASCII art to PNG converter

SYNOPSIS

     ansilove [-dhirsv] [-b bits] [-c columns] [-f font] [-m mode] [-o file] [-R factor] file

DESCRIPTION

     ansilove is an ANSI / ASCII art to PNG converter, allowing to convert ANSI and artscene-
     related file formats into PNG images, supporting ANSI (.ANS), PCBoard (.PCB), Binary (.BIN),
     Artworx (.ADF), iCE Draw (.IDF), Tundra (.TND) and XBin (.XB) formats.

     It creates size optimized 4-bit PNG files and supports SAUCE (Standard Architecture for
     Universal Comment Extensions), 80x25 and 80x50 PC fonts (including all the 14 MS-DOS
     charsets), Amiga fonts, and iCE colors.

     The options are as follows:

     -b bits     Set to 9 to render 9th column of block characters (default: 8).

     -c columns  Adjust number of columns for ANSI, BIN, and TND files.

     -d          Enable DOS aspect ratio.

     -f font     Select font for supported formats.

                 Valid options for PC fonts are:

                 80x25              Default (Code page 437)

     To create a Retina @2x output file:

           $ ansilove -r file.ans

     To creates a Retina output file with a custom scale factor:

           $ ansilove -R 3 file.ans

     To only display SAUCE record without generating output:

           $ ansilove -s file.ans
     To render a file with transparent background:

           $ ansilove -m transparent file.ans

     To render a file using a custom font:

           $ ansilove -f amiga file.txt
