NAME

       aecat - display an aewan document

SYNOPSIS

       aecat  [-b]  [-c]  [-{n|N}]  [{-p  | -l <layer_num>}] [-f <format>] [-o
       <output_file>] inputfile

DESCRIPTION

       This is an utility program that will convert an aewan document to  ANSI
       escape  sequences  so  that  it can be rendered on a standard terminal.
       Alternatively, it can  also  generate  HTML  code  for  displaying  the
       document  in  a  web  page. Any particular layer of the document may be
       converted, or you may request a composite of all layers.

OPTIONS

       -f     specifies output format  -  can  "text",  "html"  or  "comment".
              Default  is  "text".   The  "comment"  format  extracts document
              metadata.

       -c     prepend a  ’clear  screen’  escape  sequence  (only  valid  when
              outputting text).

       -o<file>
              writes output to specified file rather than stdout

       -b     disables output of color (only characters will be printed).

       -l<layer_no>
              specifies  which layer of the document is to be used (must be an
              index, not a layer name). By default, layer 0 will be used.

       -L     displays the number of layers in the file.

       -p     exports a composite,  that  is,  overlays  all  visible  layers,
              paying  attention  to  layer  transparency, etc. The size of the
              composite will be the size of the first layer

       -n     suppress output of newlines

       -h     prints a short help text
