NAME
       osd_cat - X on-screen file displayer

SYNOPSIS
       osd_cat [OPTION]	[FILE]...
       osd_cat -b percentage|slider [OPTION]

DESCRIPTION
       Display FILE, or	standard input,	on X screen.

       -p, --pos=POS
	      This  option tells osd_cat where to display the text. POS	can be
	      top, middle, or bottom. The default is top.

       -o, --offset=OFFSET
	      This option specifies the	offset	from  the  top	or  bottom  of
	      screen the text is displayed. The	default	is 0.

       -A, --align=ALIGN
	      This  option  tells osd_cat where	to display the text. ALIGN can
	      be left, right or	center.	The default is left.

       -i, --indent=OFFSET
	      This option specifies the	INDENT from the	 left  of  screen  the
	      text is displayed. The default is	0.

       -f, --font=FONT
	      This  option  specifies  the  FONT to be used for	displaying the
	      text. The	default	is fixed.

       -c, --color=COLOR
	      This option specifies the	COLOR to be used  for  displaying  the
	      text. The	default	is red.

       -d, --delay=TIME
	      This  option  specifies  the  number of seconds the text is dis-
	      played. The default is 5 seconds.

       -l, --lines=LINES
	      This option specifies the	number of LINES	to scroll the  display
	      over. The	default	is 5.

       -s, --shadow=OFFSET
	      This option specifies the	OFFSET of the text shadow. The default
	      is 0, which means	no text	shadow is created.

       -a, --age[=SCROLL_AGE]
	      This option affects screen redrawing. If SCROLL_AGE seconds pass
	      before  a	 new line is ready (for	example, you're	reading	from a
	      pipe), all lines are cleared at once instead of  being  scrolled
	      off as new lines replace old lines. The default is 0.
	      When  no	SCROLL_AGE is explicitly given,	the current value from
	      DELAY is used.

       -w, --wait
	      This option also affects screen redrawing. When  there  is  data
	      ready  to	 be  put  on screen, this option will cause osd_cat to
	      wait until the display is	clear. An alternative to scrolling.

       -b, --barmode=TYPE
	      Lets you display a percentage or	slider	bar  instead  of  just
	      text.   TYPE  may	be percentage or slider.  In this mode no text
	      is read from any file, but the following options can be used:

       -P, --percentage=PERCENTAGE
	      This option specified the	position of the	 percentage  /	slider
	      bar.   PERCENTAGE	may be in the range from 0 to 100, the default
	      is 50.

       -T, --text=TEXT
	      This option specifies an	optional  TEXT	which  gets  displayed
	      above  the  percentage  bar.   The default is empty, so no addi-
	      tional text is displayed.

       -h, --help
	      display help (which is often more	up to date) and	exit

       With no FILE, or	when FILE is -,	read standard input.
