       gliv - An OpenGL Image Viewer


       gliv [OPTIONS]... [FILES]...


       gliv  uses  gdk-pixbuf  to  load  images  and OpenGL to render them.  It allows to do some
       moving, rotating, zooming and slide show.


       The options are first set to their default values, "off" for flags, then read either  from
       ~/.glivrc  or  /etc/glivrc  or  a  configuration  file  specified on the command line, and
       finally read from the command line.
       Omitting the argument for an option that takes an "on|off" argument (flags) is like giving
       it "on", so --foo is the same as --foo=on if foo is an on|off flag.

       -h, --help
              Print help and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print version and exit.

       -a, --add-all[=on|off]
              Add  all  files  in  the  directory.  With this option, when you open a file on the
              command line or with the open dialog, all others files in the directory  are  added
              as well.

       -R, --recursive[=on|off]
              Recursive  directory traversal. If gliv tries to load a direcory, it will also load
              every image all its subdirectories.

       -S, --sort[=on|off]
              Show images in sorted order. The images list will be sorted before the slide show.

       -s, --shuffle[=on|off]
              Show images in random order. The images list will  be  shuffled  before  the  slide

       -F, --force-load[=on|off]
              Try  to load every file. When loading a file, the loader is chosen according to the
              filename extension in order to optimize the  loading  time.  If  the  extension  is
              unknown,  the  file  is  ignored, with this option gliv will always try to load the

       -C, --client[=on|off]
              Connect to a running gliv, appending to the list. With this option, gliv will  open
              the  files  passed  in the arguments in the gliv server window. It can also be used
              with the -0 option. The gliv server is the latest launched gliv or  the  one  which
              has been chosen using the Options menu.

       -c, --client-clear[=on|off]
              Connect  to  a  running  gliv, replacing the list. This is like the --client option
              except that the specified list on the client will replace the list  on  the  server
              instead of being appended to.

       -e, --build-menus[=on|off]
              No  images menu at startup. Disabling the images menus creation at startup makes it
              faster, especially with many files on the command line.

       -g, --glivrc[=FILE]
              Use this configuration file or none. Specify it to disable loading of the rc  file.
              With a filename as argument it will use it as a configuration file.

       -w, --slide-show[=on|off]
              Start  the  slide show immediately. This way you will not have to start it manually
              from the menu.

       -0, --null[=on|off]
              Read null-terminated filenames. This can be used with "find -print0"  or  with  "tr
              '\n'  '\0'"  when  you  have  a very long list of filenames to pass to gliv. Unlike
              xargs(1) it allows an unlimited number of filenames.

       -o, --collection[=FILE]
              Output a collection. With this option, gliv creates a collection  from  the  loaded
              files and outputs it to stdout or in the specified file.

       -G, --geometry=GEOMETRY
              Initial  window  geometry.  This  option  can  be  used to specify the position and
              dimension  of  the  gliv  window.  It  expects   a   geometry   argument   in   the
              XParseGeometry(3X11) format like: 640x480+20-30 for example.


       Starting  with  version  1.8,  gliv  supports  a  file format called "GLiv collection". It
       contains an images list  and  the  associated  thumbnails,  this  way,  when  you  load  a
       collection  the  images  menus  rebuilding  is  faster  since  it  does  not  have to make
       gliv supports also transparent decompression, so the  collections  can  be  compressed  in
       bzip2, gzip or compress(1) provided that  you have the corresponding decompressor.

       The  first  mouse  button and the arrow keys will move the image unless the Control key is
       pressed. In which case the image will be rotated around the window center.

       The mouse wheel zooms the image, and when you hold its button pressed at the same time  it
       switches to the neighbouring image.

       You  can  also  zoom  by  dragging  the mouse vertically while holding Shift and the first

       Space and Backspace act like n and p.

       Draw a rectangle with the third button and gliv will zoom in it.
