       gliv - An OpenGL	Image Viewer

       gliv [OPTIONS]... [FILES]...

       gliv  uses gdk-pixbuf to	load images and	OpenGL to render them.	It al-
       lows to do some moving, rotating, zooming and slide show.

       The options are first set to their default  values,  "off"  for	flags,
       then  read either from ~/.glivrc	or /etc/glivrc or a configuration file
       specified on the	command	line, and finally read from the	command	line.
       Omitting	the argument for an option that	 takes	an  "on|off"  argument
       (flags) is like giving it "on", so --foo	is the same as --foo=on	if foo
       is an on|off flag.

       -h, --help
	      Print help and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Print version and	exit.

       -a, --add-all[=on|off]
	      Add all files in the directory. With this	option,	when you  open
	      a	 file  on the command line or with the open dialog, all	others
	      files in the directory are added as well.

       -R, --recursive[=on|off]
	      Recursive	directory traversal. If	gliv tries to load a direcory,
	      it will also load	every image all	its subdirectories.

       -S, --sort[=on|off]
	      Show  images in sorted order. The	images list will be sorted be-
	      fore the slide show.

       -s, --shuffle[=on|off]
	      Show images in random order. The images list  will  be  shuffled
	      before the slide show.

       -F, --force-load[=on|off]
	      Try  to load every file. When loading a file, the	loader is cho-
	      sen according to the filename extension in order to optimize the
	      loading  time. If	the extension is unknown, the file is ignored,
	      with this	option gliv will always	try to load the	file.

       -C, --client[=on|off]
	      Connect to a running gliv, appending to the list.	With this  op-
	      tion,  gliv  will	 open the files	passed in the arguments	in the
	      gliv server window. It can also be used with the -0 option.  The
	      gliv  server  is	the  latest launched gliv or the one which has
	      been chosen using	the Options menu.

       -c, --client-clear[=on|off]
	      Connect to a running gliv, replacing the list. This is like  the
	      --client	option	except	that  the specified list on the	client
	      will replace the list on the server instead  of  being  appended

       -e, --build-menus[=on|off]
	      No  images  menu at startup. Disabling the images	menus creation
	      at startup makes it faster, especially with many	files  on  the
	      command line.

       -g, --glivrc[=FILE]
	      Use this configuration file or none. Specify it to disable load-
	      ing of the rc file. With a filename as argument it will  use  it
	      as a configuration file.

       -w, --slide-show[=on|off]
	      Start  the slide show immediately. This way you will not have to
	      start it manually	from the menu.

       -0, --null[=on|off]
	      Read null-terminated filenames. This  can	 be  used  with	 "find
	      -print0"	or  with "tr '\n' '\0'"	when you have a	very long list
	      of filenames to pass to gliv. Unlike xargs(1) it allows  an  un-
	      limited number of	filenames.

       -o, --collection[=FILE]
	      Output a collection. With	this option, gliv creates a collection
	      from the loaded files and	outputs	it to stdout or	in the	speci-
	      fied file.

       -G, --geometry=GEOMETRY
	      Initial  window geometry.	This option can	be used	to specify the
	      position and dimension of	the gliv window. It expects a geometry
	      argument	in the XParseGeometry(3X11) format like: 640x480+20-30
	      for example.

       Starting	with version 1.8, gliv supports	a  file	 format	 called	 "GLiv
       collection".  It	contains an images list	and the	associated thumbnails,
       this way, when you load a collection the	 images	 menus	rebuilding  is
       faster since it does not	have to	make thumbnails.
       gliv supports also transparent decompression, so	the collections	can be
       compressed in bzip2, gzip or compress(1)	provided that	you  have  the
       corresponding decompressor.

       ESC, q :	Quit
       f      :	Full-screen/window
       +/=/-  :	Zoom in/in/out
       n/p    :	Next/previous image
       Pause  :	Start/stop the slide show
       l      :	Reduce the image to the	window
       M      :	Maximize the image to the window
       m      :	Make the image fit the window
       r      :	Reset position and size
       b      :	Toggle display of the menu bar
       i      :	Toggle display of the info bar
       s      :	Toggle display of the scrollbars
       a      :	Toggle display of the alpha checks
       h      :	Toggle display of the help box
       w      :	Toggle display of floating windows
       o      :	Display	the open dialog
       g      :	Display	the image selector
       t      :	Display	the options dialog
       d      :	Hide the cursor
       u      :	Undo
       y      :	Redo
       c      :	Clear the history
       Delete :	Delete the current file
       C-up   :	Rotate by +90 degrees
       C-down :	Rotate by -90 degrees
       C-left :	Rotate by +0.1 degree
       C-right:	Rotate by -0.1 degree
       z      :	Horizontal flip
       e      :	Vertical flip

       The  first  mouse  button and the arrow keys will move the image	unless
       the Control key is pressed. In which case the  image  will  be  rotated
       around the window center.

       The  mouse  wheel zooms the image, and when you hold its	button pressed
       at the same time	it switches to the neighbouring	image.

       You can also zoom by dragging the mouse vertically while	holding	 Shift
       and the first button.

       Space and Backspace act like n and p.

       Draw a rectangle	with the third button and gliv will zoom in it.

       ~/.glivrc - This	file is	absolutely not mandatory.
