        aaflip - An ASCII art video player


        aaflip [-abcfv] [-n number] [-s delay]


        aaflip is an ASCII art video player which supports the fli and flc for‐
        fli files are limited to a resolution of 320x200 pixel, while flc files
        can have any resolution.
        The  default method of playing is to load the first frame of the anima‐
        tion sequence and display it. After this the remainder of the  file  is
        loaded into memory, and the animation starts. The animation ends when q
        or ctrl-c is pressed.


        -a     Remove frames from memory after processing.  Using  this  option
               leaves more memory for other processes, but relies on the buffer
               cache for continuous animation.
        -b     Process frames immediately as they are loaded. When  using  this
               option  the animation frames are shown as soon as the player has
               read them, so you don’t have to wait until the entire  file  has
               been  read. The disadvantage is that the animation becomes jumpy
               if the speed set by the animation is higher than  the  speed  of
        -c     Keep  the  screen  black  while loading the animation. This con‐
               flicts with option -b, which can give interesting results.
        -f     Switch off clock synchronization. Animation will run as fast  as
        -v     Show information on flic file.
        -n number
               Play the animation sequence number times.
        -s delay
               Set  delay  between frames to delay milliseconds. Option -s 0 is
               the same as -f.
