aewan(1) An ascii-art editor


aewan [filename]


Aewan is a multi-layered ascii-art/animation editor that produces both stand-alone cat-able art files and an easy-to-parse format for integration in your terminal applications (for information about the file format, see the aewan(5) manpage).

If you invoke the program without a command-line argument, it will open an untitled document for you to edit. If you supply an argument, it must be the name of an aewan file you wish to open. That file must exist, or an error will occur.


The Aewan Project's official homepage is the following:         

There you will find author information, FAQ, links to the latest version of the program, etc.
