NAME
       cave - Play ascii character animations.

SYNOPSIS
       cave [ -hvSsqd ]	[ -f fps ] [ -c	cue ] [	-r regex ] [ -t	seconds	] file
       ...

DESCRIPTION
       cave is an acronym for Character	 Animation  Viewer  for	 Everyone.  It
       plays  ascii  character	animations  with an curses(3) interface.  cave
       tries to	determine the location of the frame deliminator	 automatically
       (top  or	 bottom	of the frame).	Files compressed with gzip(1) are sup-
       ported.

OPTIONS
       -f fps Initial frames-per-second. The default is	15.

       -c cue Skip this	many frames when using the cue keys. The default is 8.

       -r regex
	      An alternate extended regular expression used to specify a frame
	      deliminator.  See	REGEX EXAMPLES below.

       -d     Make  a  specified  frame	deliminator a value for	a frame	delay.
	      This is the default if no	alternate frame	delay is specified.

       -s     Go directly into screensaver mode	 on  startup  cycling  through
	      multiple files.

       -S     Go  directly  into screensaver mode shuffling the	order of files
	      if more than one file is specified.

       -q     When in screensaver mode,	quit after a keypress.

       -t seconds
	      When in screensaver mode,	if an animations length	is  less  than
	      this  amount  of	seconds	then it	will loop until	it is reached.
	      The default is 30. Note that this	only works when	more than  one
	      file is specified.

       -h     Program help text.

       -v     Version and copyright information.

INTERACTIVE COMMANDS
       Press  'h'  after loading a file	to see a list of available interactive
       commands.

REGEX EXAMPLES
       ^[0-9]+[[:space:]]*$
	      Match a line beginning (^) with at least one (+)	digit  ([0-9])
	      with  zero or more (*) trailing whitespace characters until end-
	      of-line ($). This	is the default and is used for frame delays.

       ^,$    Match a line beginning with a comma immediately followed by end-
	      of-line.
