... and you missed xzgv, a really good replacement for xv as a file viewer with .xvpics thumbnail support. It also has some simple editing facilities such as rotation, flipping, scaling etc.

While on the topic, maybe look at gqview, xli (xloadimage replacement for a pure viewer that can cope with a huge array of formats), qiv...


Cheers

I was going to mention xzgv myself. Frankly, I think it's the best one around. Simple, efficient, does all the popular image formats, and doesn't get in the way visually.

Try it out, seriously. It's a tiny download, about 290 kilobytes of source. And it works.

xzgv looks good... is it possible to configure it so the viewer window size follows the image size (like xv and display do)? I couldn't see anything in the manual page.

XZGV is designed to be a full-screen image viewer, but you can specify that (for example) the zoom feature is only to shrink pictures, not grow them.

Also, the info pages are what you should be reading, not man. :-)

Info - printing, etc.

A question I haven't found an answer for is: How do I take an info page and make it printable? "man -t command" is easy. Is there something for info pages? Thanks.
