       xspect, vgaspect - ZX Spectrum emulator


       xspect [options] [[filetype] filename]

       vgaspect [options] [[filetype] filename]


       Spectemu  is  a  48k  Sinclair  ZX  Spectrum  emulator  for Linux and other UNIX operating

       The program xspect can be started in X11, and opens up a window to display the  screen  of
       the  Spectrum. Do not start xspect in the background, because it uses the terminal to read
       filenames, and to print information on the state of the emulator.

       The vgaspect program can only be started on a Linux console, and uses the SVGALIB library.
       On non linux systems this program is not available.


       For  both  xspect  and  vgaspect  a  snapshot  file or a tape file can be specified on the
       command line. The file can have the extension .z80 , .sna , .tap or  .tzx  (the  extension
       can be ommitted).

       The  option  -help  displays  a  list  of available options. For a more complete list, and
       description see the file README.

       For xspect The following options also have meaning:

       -display DISPLAYNAME
              Open the window on DISPLAYNAME instead of the default

       -name WINDOWNAME
              Change the title of the window to WINDOWNAME


       You can press Ctrl-H to get help on what keys to use.

       For more information on the features available in Spectemu see the file README distributed
       with the emulator.




       I  try to keep nasty bugs like "Segmentation Fault" out of Spectemu, so if you notice one,
       STEP ON IT! There are some cuter and gentler bugs, which are kept in Spectemu to amuse the
       user (see TODO).
