NAME
       aemakeflic - produce an animation from an aewan document

SYNOPSIS
       aemakeflic [-f {less|sh}] [-N] [-b] [-d <delay>] input.ae
       [outputfile.ext]


DESCRIPTION
       This utility will make an ascii animation out of an aewan document. It
       can currently produce animations in two formats: a shellscript which,
       when executed, will display the animation and a "less movie" intended to
       be "played" on the very popular 'less' output pager -- that is, the user
       will see the animation as he pages down through the file in an
       appropriate window size.

       Each layer in the aewan document is interpreted as one frame of the
       animation.  Layer transparency and compositing are not used: each layer
       becomes a frame.


OPTIONS
       -f     specifies output format - can "sh" for a shellscript or "less" for
              a "less movie"

       -N     omit the initial instructions that are normally included in the
              resulting file. The instructions will orient the user as to how to
              play the file.

       -b     disables output of color (only characters will be printed).

       -d delay
              specifies the delay between frames (for shellscript only), given
              in milliseconds.
