Description:

    This program is written to view ascii animations.  If you don't know
what i mean the best thing you may do is start the program with one of the
animations from this archive.


Disclaimer:

   Use  this  program  at  your  own  risk!   I assume no responsibility or
liability   for   any problems  or  damages  that  occur  by  the  use,
modification, or  existence  of  this program.


Usage:

   The viewer:

     asciiSHOW anim_file/A frame_delay/A/N
        or
     ansiSHOW anim_file/A frame_delay/A/N

          where:

             anim_file   - should be text file (it's very good if it is an
                           animation)
             frame_delay - it's a one frame time. For example:
                           frame_delay=0 is equal to about 50 frame per second
                           frame_delay=1 should be equal to 25 fps. (depends on
                           hardware and animation's datails)

                Attention!  The ansiSHOW seems to be buggy and sometimes
                            reboots machine. It'll be fixed soon.

    The saver:

        ansiSAVE anim_file out_root

          where:

                out_root - is a the root of file where the separate
                           frames in iff-ilbm format will be saved.

Bugs:

    The ansiSHOW crashes on some lengths of anim file. 


History:

   1.0 (30-Jan-2000)
        - First steps.  Program was very slow, but knew how to save iff
          frames.
        - For internal use of The Crew group.
        - First public version. Aminet Upload.
   1.2 (6-Feb-2000)
        - Background picture for animations added.  Anims was reading
          directly from file.
   1.3 (20-Feb-2000)
        - errors handler added.
        - ansi colors implemented.
   1.4 (24-Sep-2000)
        - file is loaded to memory at the start.
        - some alghoritm optimisations.
   1.5 (21-Aug-2001)
        - separated viewer and saver. The viewer can be much faster now.
        - lot of small changes. Speed improved.
   1.6 (25-Aug-2001)
        - mem loading rewriten to speed up viewing.

   1.7 - 1.9
        - few not good ideas and some experiments.
   2.0 (23-NOV-2001)
        - background removed (will be in future added to SAVER)
        - separated simple ascii and ansi viewer versions.
        - the asciiSHOW is now twice as fast as v1.5 and can show up 50 fps on
my 68040/40.

        - first public release. Aminet upload.
