bnilist(1) list contents of a icon file


bnilist [options] [--] [bnifile]


bnilist is a simple program which will list all the icons stored in a BNI file along with their attributes. Additionally, information is displayed from the TGA header in the same format as tgainfo(1) would use. Some simple sanity checks are also done to verify the file is using the same format as expected by the other bni utilities.

If bnifile is not specified or is specified as "-", the standard input will be used.
