NAME

fimgs - poor man’s [http://]PostScript/pdf/dvi/cbr/rar/cbz/zip viewer based on fim

SYNOPSIS

fimgs [ {fimgs-options} ] file [-- [{fim-options}]]

DESCRIPTION

fimgs is a wrapper script which takes a PostScript or pdf or .cbr or .rar or .cbz or .zip or .dvi or any of the above prefixed with http:// or https:// or ssh:// as input, renders the pages using ghostscript into a temporary directory and finally calls fim to display them.

In case of compressed archives (in ZIP or RAR formats), the images are decompressed into a directory and displayed using fim. In this case, only images contained in the archive will be displayed (no nested archives or pdf’s or ps’s or dvi’s).

The temporary directory name will be of the form $TMPDIR/fbps-$$. If the $TMPDIR environment variable is unset, /dev/shm and /var/tmp will be checked for existence and permissions. The $$ above is the script process ID. The script shall delete the temporary directory when fim terminates.

In order to uncompress RAR archives, fimgs will use ’unrar-nonfree’ or ’rar’ or ’unrar-free’.

In order to uncompress ZIP archives, fimgs will use ’zip’.

In order to fetch http:// or https:// prefixed URLS, ’wget’ will be used.

In case of a CBZ, CBR, PDF, PS, or DVI file, will invoke fim with ’--autotop --autowidth’.

OPTIONS

To pass through options to fim, you may specify them after "--".

Defaut options are ’--autozoom’.

-r {resolution} Specify resolution for the ’gs’ -r option (e.g.: 96x96; default 120x120).

-m

Dump a man page for fimgs.

-p {password}

Specify password for the ’gs’ -p (password) option.

-h

Will display a help message.
