       aaflip - An ASCII art video player


       aaflip [-abcfv] [-n number] [-s delay]


       aaflip is an ASCII art video player which supports the fli and flc formats.

       fli  files  are  limited  to  a  resolution of 320x200 pixel, while flc files can have any

       The default method of playing is to load the first frame of  the  animation  sequence  and
       display  it. After this the remainder of the file is loaded into memory, and the animation
       starts. The animation ends when q or ctrl-c is pressed.


       -a     Remove frames from memory after processing. Using this option  leaves  more  memory
              for other processes, but relies on the buffer cache for continuous animation.

       -b     Process frames immediately as they are loaded. When using this option the animation
              frames are shown as soon as the player has read them, so you  don't  have  to  wait
              until the entire file has been read. The disadvantage is that the animation becomes
              jumpy if the speed set by the animation is higher than the speed of loading.

       -c     Keep the screen black while loading the animation. This conflicts with  option  -b,
              which can give interesting results.

       -f     Switch off clock synchronization. Animation will run as fast as possible.

       -v     Show information on flic file.

       -n number
              Play the animation sequence number times.

       -s delay
              Set delay between frames to delay milliseconds. Option -s 0 is the same as -f.
