NAME
       alevtd -	webserver for videotext	pages

SYNOPSIS
       alevtd [	options	]

DESCRIPTION
       alevtd  is  http	 daemon	which serves videotext pages as	HTML.  Tune in
       some station with a utility like	v4lctl or some TV  application.	  Then
       start it	and point your browser to http://localhost:5654/

       Pages   may   be	  requested   either  in  HTML	format	(http://local-
       host:5654/<page>/ or http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.html) or in
       ASCII  text  format (http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.txt).  Sub-
       page "00" can be	used for pages without subpages.

OPTIONS
       -h     print a short help text and the default values for all options.

       -v dev set vbi device (default: /dev/vbi0).

       -d     enable debug output.

       -s     Write a start/stop notice	and  serious  errors  to  the  syslog.
	      Specify  this  option twice to get a verbose log (additional log
	      events like dropped connections).

       -t sec set network timeout to >sec< seconds.

	      set the hostname which the server	should use (required for redi-
	      rects).

       -i ip  bind to IP-address >ip<.

       -l log log all requests to the logfile >log< (common log	format).   Us-
	      ing "-" as filename makes	alevtd print the access	log to stdout,
	      which is only useful together with the -F	switch (see below).

       -L log same as above, but additional flush every	line.  Useful  if  you
	      want monitor the logfile with tail -f.

	      detach from terminal and report errors to	stderr.

	      was detected.
