cacaview(1)		    General Commands Manual		   cacaview(1)

NAME
       cacaview	- ASCII	image browser

SYNOPSIS
       cacaview	[FILE...]

DESCRIPTION
       cacaview	is a lightweight text mode image viewer. It renders images us-
       ing colour ASCII	characters. It is a powerful add-on to famous  console
       programs	 such  as  the	mutt email client, the slrn newsreader and the
       links or	w3m web	browsers.

       cacaview	can load the most widespread image formats:  PNG,  JPEG,  GIF,
       PNG, BMP	etc.

       You  can	 zoom and scroll the image around for more details, and	choose
       four different dithering	modes. All commands are	accessible  through  a
       single key press.

KEYS

EXAMPLE
       cacaview	/usr/share/pixmaps/*.*

BUGS
       There is	no support for aspect ratio yet. Also, since there is  no  way
       yet  to	load  an image from cacaview it	is completely useless when run
       without an argument.
