aecat(1) display an aewan document


aecat [-b] [-c] [-{n|N}] [{-p | -l <layer_num>}] [-f <format>] [-o <output_file>] inputfile


This is an utility program that will convert an aewan document to ANSI escape sequences so that it can be rendered on a standard terminal. Alternatively, it can also generate HTML code for displaying the document in a web page. Any particular layer of the document may be converted, or you may request a composite of all layers.


specifies output format - can "text", "html" or "comment". Default is "text". The "comment" format extracts document metadata.
prepend a 'clear screen' escape sequence (only valid when outputting text).
writes output to specified file rather than stdout
disables output of color (only characters will be printed).
specifies which layer of the document is to be used (must be an index, not a layer name). By default, layer 0 will be used.
displays the number of layers in the file.
exports a composite, that is, overlays all visible layers, paying attention to layer transparency, etc. The size of the composite will be the size of the first layer
suppress output of newlines
prints a short help text
