NAME

       display-file - Render display into image file

SYNOPSIS

       display-file: [-flushcmd=<command>] [-flushframe=<n>]
                     [-flushtime=<t>] <filename>

DESCRIPTION

       Renders  an  image  into a file.  The file can be a framebuffer device (e.g. /dev/fb0), in
       which case a reasonable representation of the image will be drawn on the console  so  long
       as the program's mode matches the framebuffer's mode.
              Note:  This  target generates no input.  The display-multi(7) target can be used in
              order to see (and control) what the program does (using a normal target)  and  then
              generate a snapshot when the program exits.

OPTIONS

       filename  is  the  file  to  render the images to.  If the filename is a PPM file (has the
       extension .ppm), then the image will be generated at ggiClose(3) time.  Otherwise the file
       is a custom GGIFILE format and is generated continuously.

       The  display-file  target can be used to generate movies from running LibGGI applications.
       To do this, set -flushcmd to a shell command to execute at the times given by one  of  the
       two other parameters. This looks typically like:

       ppmtogif foo.ppm > foo.%04d.gif

       The  command  is passed through a printf(3) which has the current count of saved frames as
       an argument (or rather as 10 arguments to allow a few more complex commands).

       This shell command is either executed at every n-th invocation  of  ggiFlush  or  every  t
       seconds, where t can have fractional components (specified as decimal).

       Note,  that  the  invocation of the shell command will slow down the program, so make sure
       you use a reasonable value, if you use the -flushtime argument.

       The primary file is updated before every invocation of the shell command.
