Note: A precompiled version HAS been included. Compilation
should be straightforward. Check compile.readme, or run 
compile_shim.sh.

shim Is a simple command line utility to show graphical images
of various formats. It uses the SDL and SDL_image libraries. 
Use <shim -h> for more information, use <shim -v> to find out
version information. Alternatively check 
http://home.earthlink.net/~pegasosppc, there the shim source 
files can also be found. The author can be emailed at:
pegasosppc at earthlink.net

I have released this under the GPL so it may be useful for others,
for example to see how to write an SDL program, implement commandline 
arguments, to extend it etc. It is fairly simple, basic and straightforward.
Because of that some (obvious) things have not been done, or have been done 
differently.

Known issues: 

- There is no recursive directory scanning, the program stupidly
reports directories as files it can not display. I did not feel like fixing it.
And the program is quite right actually ;-)

- When used on morphos shim somehow doesn't seem to recognise morphos' shell's 
wildcard(#?) correctly. Again I did not feel like fixing it (I don't even 
know why it happens).


Enjoy ;-)
