NAME
       glbiff - an OpenGL-based xbiff replacement

SYNOPSIS
       glbiff [options]

DESCRIPTION
       `glbiff' is a mail monitoring and notification program similar to
       xbiff, except that it provides a somewhat nicer output.  It requires
       Mesa (OpenGL-based API graphics library) to render the 3D mailbox. The
       idea comes from the "mailbox" program available on SGI machines, and
       hence tries to mimic some of the features present in it.

       Note that this is an alpha version, and hence there are still
       "some"(tm) outstanding bugs.

       Some interraction is possible with `glbiff'.  If the use right-clicks
       on the window, the mailbox opens to show its contents.  A left-click on
       the window also opens the mailbox, and brings up a mail reading
       program.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
              Print a help message describing the command's syntax.

       -v, --version
              Prints the version number of the program.

       -n <program>, --newmail <program>
              Specifies an external program or shell script to be called when
              new mail arrives.  Most often used to acoustically inform the
              user of the arrival.

       -m <program>, --mailprog <program>
              Specifies the program to be invoked to read mail (executed when
              the user left-clicks on the glbiff window).

       -f <conf_file>, --cfgfile <conf_file>
              Read the configuration from the specified conf_file instead of
              the default location (see FILES).

       -g <str>, -geom <str>, -geometry <str>, --geometry <str>
              This is the standard X11 command line switch, denoting the
              desired size and location of the client window.

FILES
       ~/.glbiffrc
              The user's configuration file. See glbiffrc(5) for further
              details.
