png-fb — display a Portable Network Graphics (PNG) image file on a framebuffer
png-fb [-Hicvz1 ] [-gscreen_gamma ] [-Fframebuffer ] [-m#lines ] [-Ssquarescrsize ] [-Wscr_width ] [-Nscr_height ] [-xfile_xoff ] [-yfile_yoff ] [-Xscr_xoff ] [-Yscr_yoff ] [
format file from the named file, or from
standard in if no file is specified, and displays the
image on the currently selected framebuffer.
The environment variable FB_FILE may be used to specify
the current framebuffer, see
Alternatively, the framebuffer may be explicitly specified
by using the
By default, the requested framebuffer size is assumed to be 512x512 pixels.
option specifies the gamma value for the screen where the image is to be displayed.
Larger values will produce lighter colored display.
flag is specified, the image is inverted.
flag causes the screen to be cleared before the image is displayed.
The default behavior is to overwrite the current image
with the new image without clearing the screen.
option will print verbose information about the PNG file.
option will print a single line on standard output providing
the dimensions of the image in a format readily usable in shell scripts,
e.g. WIDTH=42 HEIGHT=17.
flag will zoom and center on the image being displayed
to make it fill the display area, using the libfb fb_zoom() routine.
fb_zoom only offers integer zoom factors, so displays with non-square
screens (such as the SGI 3D machines) may find this option of limited
flag specifies the width of each scanline in the display device, in pixels.
flag specifies the height in scanlines of the display device.
set both the height and width to the size given.
-x file_xoff -y file_yoff

will offset into the file or onto the screen by the given amounts.
The coordinate system for these offsets is first quadrant, with
the origin at the lower left corner of the image.
flag causes the image to be written to the framebuffer one line at
a time, using the
routine. This is the default behavior.
flag can be used to specify the number of lines to be written to the
framebuffer in rectangular blocks of scanlines, using the
In some circumstances, this can result in significantly faster image
display, at the expense of the image being written less smoothly.
