       lolcat - rainbow coloring for text


       lolcat [options] [files] ...


       This manual page documents briefly the lolcat command.

       lolcat  is  a program that concatenates files, or standard input, to standard output (like
       the generic cat), and adds rainbow coloring to it.


       -p f, --spread=f
              Inclination of the rainbow stripes (character widths per line  hight;  high  values
              (>1000)  give  almost  horizonal  stripes,  low  values (0.1) almost vertical ones;
              default: 3.0).

       -F f, --freq=f
              Frequency of the  rainbow  (low  values  around  0.0001  give  almost  monochromous
              screens; default: 0.1).

       -S i, --seed=i
              Initial value for the random number generator; 0 means automatic (default: 0).

       -a, --animate
              Fade every line through an animation before printing the next one.

       -d i, --duration=i
              Duration of the animation (number of steps before showing next line; default: 12)

       -s i, --speed=i
              Speed of the animation (frame rate, ie. number of steps per second; default: 20)

       -f, --force
              Force color even when stdout is not a tty

       -v, --version
              Show version of lolcat.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.


       Typical combinations of lolcat include other programs that generate text:

       Large colorful words can be written like this:

              echo "KTHXBAI" | toilet | lolcat

       Cows are popular, come in all colors, and tell random epigrams:

              fortune | cowsay | lolcat -a


       cat(1), toilet(1), fortune(6), cowsay(6)
