fimrc - fim configuration file and language reference

SYNOPSIS

~/.fimrc
/usr/local/etc/fimrc
fim --script-from-stdin [ {options} ] < {scriptfile}
fim --execute-script {scriptfile} [ {options} ]
fim --execute-commands {commands} [ {options} ]
fim --final-commands {commands} [ {options} ]
fim --write-scriptout {scriptfile} [ {options} ]
fim --write-scriptout /dev/stdout [ {options} ]

DESCRIPTION

This page explains the fim language, which is used for the fimrc configuration files, {scriptfile}s, or {commands} passed via command line {options}. This language can be used to issue commands (or programs) from the internal program command line accessed interactively through the ":" key (or rather, the key code specified by the "_console_key" variable). One may exit from command line mode by pressing the Enter key on an empty line (a non empty command line would be submitted for execution), or the Esc key (only in SDL mode). The general form of a fim command/program is shown in the next section.

FIM LANGUAGE GRAMMAR

This section specifies the grammar of the fim language.

Language elements surrounded by a single quote ("’") are literals.

Warning: at the present state, this grammar has conflicts. A future release shall fix them.

A STRING can be either a single quoted string or a double quoted string. A floating point number can be either unquoted (UNQUOTED_FLOAT) or quoted (QUOTED_FLOAT). A QUOTED_FLOAT is a floating point number, either single ("’") or double (""") quoted. An INTEGER shall be an unsigned integer number. An IDENTIFIER shall be one of the valid fim commands (see COMMANDS REFERENCE ) or a valid alias. A VARIABLE shall be an already declared or undeclared variable identifier (see VARIABLES REFERENCE ) or a valid alias, created using the alias command. The "=~" operator treats the right expression as a STRING, and uses is as a regular expression for matching purposes. The SLASH_AND_REGEXP is a slash ("/") followed by a STRING, interpreted as a regular expression. See regex(1) for regular expression syntax.

The way some one-line statements are evaluated:

: enter command line mode
:{number} jump to {number}^th image in the list

:^

jump to first image in the list

:$

jump to last image in the list

:*{factor} scale the image by {factor}
:{scale}% scale the image to the desired {scale}
:+{scale}% scale the image up to the desired percentage {scale} (relatively to the original)
:-{scale}% scale the image down to the desired percentage {scale} (relatively to the original)

/{regexp}

entering the pattern {regexp} (with /) makes fim jump to the next image whose filename matches {regexp}

/*.png$

entering this pattern (with /) makes fim jump to the next image whose filename ends with ’png’

/png

a shortcut for /.*png.*

!{syscmd}

executes the {syscmd} quoted string as an argument to the "system" fim command.

COMMANDS REFERENCE

alias
alias [{identifier} [{commands} [{description}]]]
Without arguments, lists the current aliases.
With one, shows an identifier’s assigned command.
With two, assigns to an identifier a user defined command or sequence of commands.
With three, also assigns a help string.

align
align ’bottom’: align to the lower side the current image.
align ’top’: align to the upper side the current image.

autocmd
autocmd {event} {pattern} {commands}: manipulate autocommands (inspired from Vim autocmd’s).
Without arguments, list autocommands.
With arguments, specifies for which type of event and which current file open, which commands to execute.
See the default built-in configuration files for examples.

autocmd_del
autocmd_del: specify autocommands to delete.
Usage: autocmd_del {event} {pattern} {commands}.

basename
basename {filename}: returns the basename of {filename} in the ’_last_cmd_output’ variable.

bind
bind [{keysym} [{commands}]]: bind a keyboard symbol/shortcut {keysym} to {commands}.
If {keysym} is at least two characters long and begins with 0 (zero), the integer number after the 0 will be treated as a raw keycode to bind the specified {keysym} to.
Use the ’_verbose_keys’ variable to discover (display device dependent) raw keys.
Key binding is dynamical, so you can rebind keys even during program’s execution.
You can get a list of valid symbols (keysyms) by invoking dump_key_codes or in the man page.

cd
cd {path}: change the current directory to {path}.
cd ’-’ will change to the previous current directory (before the last ’:cd {path}’ command).

clear
clear: clear the virtual console.

commands
commands: display the existing commands.

color
color [desaturate]: desaturate the displayed image colors.
color [negate]: negate the displayed image colors.
color [colorblind|c|deuteranopia|d]: simulate a form of the deuteranopia color vision deficiency (cvd).
color [protanopia|p]: simulate a form of the protanopia cvd.
color [tritanopia|t]: simulate a form of the tritanopia cvd.
color [daltonize|D]: if following a cvd specification, will attempt correcting it.
color [identity]: populate the image with ’RGB identity’ pixels.
To get back the original you will have to reload the image.

desc
desc ’load’ {filename} [{sepchar}]: load description file {filename}, using the optional {sepchar} character as separator.
desc ’reload’: load once again description files specified at the command line with --load-image-descriptions-file, with respective separators.
desc [’-all’] [’-append’] ’save’ {filename} [{sepchar}]: save current list descriptions to file {filename}, using the optional {sepchar} character as separator, and if ’-all’ is present will save the variables, and if ’-append’ is present, will only append, and if ’-nooverw’ is present, will not overwrite existing files.
See documentation of --load-image-descriptions-file for the format of {filename}.

display
display [’reinit’ {string}]|’resize’ {w} {h}]: display the current file contents.
If ’reinit’ switch is supplied, the ’{string}’ specifier will be used to reinitialize (e.g.: change resolution, window system options) the display device.
See documentation for the --output-device command line switch for allowed values of {string}.
If ’resize’ and no argument, will ask the window manager to size the window like the image.
If ’resize’ and two arguments, these will be used as width and height of window, to set.

dump_key_codes
dump_key_codes: dump the active key codes (unescaped, for inspection purposes).

echo
echo {args}: print the {args} on console.

else
if(expression){action;}[’else’{action;}]: see else.

eval
eval {args}: evaluate {args} as commands, executing them.

exec
exec {filename(s)}: execute script {filename(s)}.

font
font ’scan’ [{dirname}]: scan {dirname} or /usr/share/consolefonts looking for fonts in the internal fonts list.
font ’load’ {filename}: load font {filename}.
font ’next’/’prev’: load next/previous font in the internal fonts list.
font ’info’: print current font filename.

getenv
getenv {identifier}: display the value of the ’{identifier}’ environment variable.

goto
goto {[’+’|’-’]{number}[’%’][’f’|’p’]} | {/{regexp}/} | {’+//’} | {’+/’|’-/’}[C] | {{’+’|’-’}{identifier}[’+’]}: jump to an image.
If {number} is given, and not surrounded by any specifier, will go to image at index {number}.
If followed by ’%’, the effective index will be computed as a percentage to the current available images.
If prepended by ’-’ or ’+’, the jump will be relative to the current index.
The ’f’ specifier asks for the jump to occur within the files.
The ’p’ specifier asks for the jump to occur in terms of pages, within the current file.
If /{regexp}/ is given, will jump to the first image matching the given /{regexp}/ regular expression pattern.
If given ’+//’, will jump to the first different image matching the last given regular expression pattern.
With ’+/’C or ’-/’C will jump to next or previous file according to C: if ’s’ if same directory, if ’d’ if down the directory hierarchy, if ’u’ if down the directory hierarchy, if ’b’ if same basename, if upper case match is negative, if missing defaults to ’S’ (jump to file in different dir).
If {identifier|identifier2...}] is encountered after a ’+’ or ’-’ sign, jump to next or previous image having a different value for any corresponding i:{identifier} (a trailing ’+’ will require a non empty value).
Match will occur on both file name and description, eventually loaded via desc or --load-image-descriptions-file; see also ’_lastgotodirection’ and ’_re_search_opts’.
You can specify multiple arguments to goto: those after the first triggering a jump will be ignored.
Executes autocommands for events PreGoto and PostGoto.

help
help [{identifier}]: provide online help, assuming {identifier} is a variable, alias, or command identifier.
If {identifier} begins with ’/’, the search will be on the help contents and a list of matching items will be given instead.
A list of commands can be obtained simply invoking ’commands’; a list of aliases with ’alias’; a list of bindings with ’bind’.

if
if(expression){action;}[’else’{action;}]: see ’else’.

info
info: display information about the current file.

limit
limit {’-list’|’-listall’} ’variable’|[’-further’|’-merge’|’-subtract’] [{expression} |{variable} {value}]: A browsable file list filtering function (like limiting in the ’mutt’ program). Uses information loaded via --load-image-descriptions-file.
If invoked with ’-list’/’-listall’ only, will list the current description variable ids.
If invoked with ’-list’/’-listall’ ’id’, will list set values for the variable ’id’.
If ’-further’ is present, will start with the current list; if not, with the full list.
If ’-merge’ is present, new matches will be merged in the existing list and sorted.
If ’-subtract’ is present, sort and filter out matches.
If {variable} and {values} are provided, limit to files having property {variable} set to {value}.
If {expression} is one exclamation point (’!’), will limit to the currently marked files only.
If {expression} is ’~!’ will limit to files with unique basename.
if ’~=’, to files with duplicate basename.
if ’~^’, to the first of the files with duplicate basename.
if ’~$’, to the last of the files with duplicate basename.
On ’~i’ [MINIDX][-][MAXIDX], (each a number eventually followed by a multiplier ’K’) will limit on filenames in position MINIDX to MAXIDX.
On ’~z’ will limit to files having the current file’s size.
on ’~z’ [MINSIZE][-][MAXSIZE], (each a number eventually followed by a multiplier among ’k’,’K’,’m’,’M’) will limit on filesize within these limits.
on ’~d’ will limit to files having the current file’s date +- one day.
on ’~d’ [MINTIME][-][MAXTIME], (each the count of seconds since the Epoch (First of Jan. of 1970) or a date as DD/MM/YYYY) will limit on file time (struct stat’s ’st_mtime’, in seconds) within this interval.
For other values of {expression}, limit to files whose description string matches {expression}.
Invoked with no arguments, the original browsable files list is restored.

list ’marked’: show which files have been marked so far.
list ’dumpmarked’: dump to stdout the marked files (you will want usually to ’unmarkall’ afterwards).
list ’markall’: mark all the current list files.
list ’unmarkall’: unmark all the marked files.
list ’pushdir’ {dirname}: will push all the files in {dirname}, when matching the regular expression in variable _pushdir_re or, if empty, from constant regular expression ’.JPG$|.PNG$|.GIF$|.BMP$|.TIFF$|.TIF$ |.JPEG$|.JFIF$|.PPM$|.PGM$|.PBM$|.PCX$’.
list ’pushdirr’ {dirname}: like pushdir, but will also push encountered directory entries recursively.
list ’swap’: will move the current image filename to the first in the list (you’ll have to invoke reload to see the effect).
Of the above commands, several will be temporarily non available for the duration of a background load (enabled by --background-recursive), which will last until _loading_in_background is 0.

load

Those associated to actual commands are mentioned in the associated commands reference.

VARIABLES REFERENCE

If undeclared, a variable will evaluate to 0.

When assigning a variable to a string, use single or double quoting, otherwise it will be treated as a number.

The namespaces in which variables may exist are: current image, global. A namespace is specified by a prefix, which can be: ’i:’, be prepended to the variable name. The global namespace is equivalent to the empty one:’’. The special variable i:* expands to the collation of all the name-value pairs for the current image.

[out,g:] the contents of the default (hardcoded) grammar file.
_fim_scriptout_file
[in,g:] the name of the file to write to when recording sessions.
_fim_version
[out,g:] fim version number; may be used for keeping compatibility of fim scripts across evolving versions.
_hsteps
[in,g:] the default steps, in pixels, when panning images horizontally (overrides steps).
_ignorecase
[in,g:] if 1, will allow for case insensitive regexp-based match in autocommands (autocmd).
_info_fmt_str
[in,g:] custom info format string, displayed in the lower right corner of the status bar; may contain ordinary text and special ’expando’ sequences. These are: %p for current scale, in percentage; %w for width; %h for height; %i for image index in list; %k for the value of i:_comment (comment description) variable in square brackets; %l for current image list length; %L for flip/mirror/orientation information; %P for page information; %F for file size; %M for screen image memory size; %m for memory used by mipmap; %C for memory used by cache; %T for total memory used (approximation); %R for total max memory used (as detected by getrusage()); %n for the current file path name; %N for the current file path name basename; ; %c for centering information; %v for the fim program/version identifier string; %% for an ordinary %. A sequence like %?VAR?EXP? expands to EXP if i:VAR is set; EXP will be copied verbatim except for contained sequences of the form %:VAR:, which will be expanded to the value of variable i:VAR; this is meant to be used like in e.g. ’%?EXIF_DateTimeOriginal?[%:EXIF_DateTimeOriginal:]?’, where the EXIF-set variable EXIF_DateTimeOriginal (make sure you have libexif for this) will be used only if present.
_inhibit_display
[internal,g:] if 1, will inhibit display.
_last_cmd_output
[out,experimental,g:] the last command output.
_last_file_loader
[out,g:] after each image load, _last_file_loader will be set to the last file loader used.
_last_system_output
[out,experimental,g:] the standard output of the last call to the system command.
_lastfileindex
[out,g:] the last visited image numeric index. Useful for jumping back and forth easily between two images with ’goto _lastfileindex’.

_load_default_etc_fimrc
[in,g:] if 1 at startup, will load the system wide initialization file.
_load_fim_history
[in,g:] if 1 on startup, will load the ~/.fim_history file on startup.
_load_hidden_dirs

_loading_in_background
[out,g:] 1 if program has been invoked with --background-recursive and still loading in background.
_lwidth
[in,g:] if>0, will force the output console text width.
_magnify_factor
[in,g:] the image scale multiplier used when magnifying images size.
_max_cached_images
[in,g:] the maximum number of images after which evictions will be forced. Setting this to 0 (no limits) is ok provided _max_cached_memory is set meaningfully.
_max_cached_memory
[in,g:] the maximum amount of memory (in KiB) at which images will be continued being added to the cache. Setting this to 0 (no limit) will lead to a crash (there is no protection currently).
_max_iterated_commands
[g:] the iteration limit for N in "N[commandname]" iterated command invocations.
_min_cached_images
[in,g:] the minimum number of images to keep from eviction; if less than four can lead to inefficiencies: e.g. when jumping between two images, each time an erase and a prefetch of neighboring images would trigger. default value is 4.
_no_default_configuration
[in,g:] if 0, a default, hardcoded configuration will be executed at startup, after the minimal hardcoded one.
_no_external_loader_programs
[in,g:] if 1, no external loading programs will be tried for piping in an unsupported type image file.

[in,optional,g:,i:] offset (specified in bytes) used when opening a file; [out] i:_open_offset will be assigned to images opened at a nonzero offset.
_open_offset_retry
[in,optional,g:] number of adjacent bytes to probe in opening the file.
_orientation
[internal,i:] Orthogonal clockwise rotation (orientation) is controlled by: ’i:_orientation’, ’g:_orientation’ and applied on a per-image basis. In particular, the values of the three variables are summed up and the sum is interpreted as the image orientation. If the sum is 0, no rotation will apply; if it is 1, a single ( 90’) rotation will apply; if it is 2, a double (180’) rotation will apply; if it is 3, a triple (270’) rotation will apply. If the sum is not one of 0,1,2,3, the value of the sum modulo 4 is considered. Therefore, ":i:_orientation=1" and ":i:_orientation=5" are equivalent: they rotate the image one time by 90’.
_preferred_rendering_dpi
[in,optional,g:] if >0, pdf, ps, djvu rendering will use this value for a default document dpi (instead of a default value).
_preferred_rendering_width
[in,optional,g:] if >0, bit based rendering will use this value for a default document width (instead of a default value).
_push_checks
[in,experimental,g:] if 1 (default), will check with stat() existence of input files before push’ing them (set this to 0 to speed up loading very long file lists; in these cases a trailing slash (/) will have to be used to tell fim a pathname is a directory). This only works after initialization (thus, after command line files have been push’ed); use --no-stat-push if you wish to set this to 0 at command line files specification.
_push_pushes_dirs
[in,g:] if 1, the push command will also accept and push directories (using pushdir). if 2, will also push hidden files/directories, that is, ones whose names begin with a dot (.).
_pushdir_re
[in] regular expression to match against when pushing files from a directory or an archive. By default this is ".JPG$|.PNG$|.GIF$ |.BMP$|.TIFF$|.TIF$|.JPEG$|.JFIF$|.PPM$|.PGM$|.PBM$|.PCX$".
_pwd
[out,g:] the current working directory; will be updated at startup and whenever the working directory changes.
_re_search_opts
[in,g:] affects regexp-based searches; if an empty string, defaults will apply; if contains ’i’ (’I’), case insensitive (sensitive) searches will occur; if contains ’b’, will match on basename, if contains ’f’ on full pathname.
_reduce_factor
[in,g:] the image scale multiplier used when reducing images size.
_retry_loader_probe
[in,g:] if 1 and user specified a file loader and this fails, will probe for a different loader.
_rows
[in,g:] if >0, will set the number of displayed text lines in the console.
_save_fim_history
[in,g:] if 1 on exit, will save the ~/.fim_history file on exit.
_scale_factor_delta
[in,g:] value used for incrementing/decrementing the scaling factors.
_scale_factor_multiplier
[in,g:] value used for scaling up/down the scaling factors.
_scale_style
[in,g:] if non empty, this string will be fed to the scale command; see its documentation for possible values.
_screen_height
[out] the screen height.
_screen_width
[out,g:] the screen width.
_scroll_skip_page_fraction
[int,g:] if >1, fraction of page which will be skipped in when scrolling (e.g. ’scrollforward’); if 1, auto chosen; if <1, disabled.
_seek_magic
[optional,g:] will seek a ’magic’ signature in the file after opening it, and will try decoding it starting within the range of that signature (use like this: fim -C ’_seek_magic=MAGIC_STRING;push filename’).
_status_line
[in,g:] if 1, will display the status bar.
_steps
[in,g:] the default steps, in pixels, when panning images.
_sys_rc_file
[in,g:] string with the global configuration file name.
_use_exiftool
[in,g:] if >0 and supported, exiftool will be used to get additional information. if 1, this will be appened to _comment; if 2, will go to _exiftool_comment.
_use_mipmaps
[in,g:] if >0, will use mipmaps to speed up downscaling of images (this has a memory overhead equivalent to one image copy); mipmaps will not be cached. If 2, will use every fourth source pixel instead of averaging (good for photos, not for graphs).
_verbose_errors
[in,g:] if 1, will display on stdout internal errors, while parsing commands.
_verbose_keys
[in,g:] if 1, after each interactive mode key hit, the console will display the hit key raw keycode.
_verbosity
[in,experimental,g:] program verbosity.
_vsteps
[in,g:] the default steps, in pixels, when panning images vertically (overrides steps).
_want_autocenter
[in,g:] if 1, the image will be displayed centered.
_want_exif_orientation
[in,g:] if 1, will reorient images using information from EXIF metadata (and stored in in __exif_orientation, __exif_mirrored, __exif_flipped ).
_want_prefetch

_want_sleep_seconds
[in,g:] number of seconds of sleep during slideshow mode.
_want_wm_caption_status
[in,g:] this works only if supported by the display device (currently only SDL). if set to a number that is not 0, will show the status (or command) line in the window manager caption; if set to a non-empty string, will interpret it just as a file info format string (see _info_fmt_str); if empty, will show the program version.
_want_wm_mouse_ctrl
[in,g:] if at least 9 chars long, enable mouse click/movement behaviour when in SDL mode; the 9 chars will correspond to a 3x3 screen clickable grid and the equivalent command keys; clicking middle or right button will toggle on-screen usage info.

[in,out,i:] a floating point number specifying the rotation angle, in degrees.
ascale
[in,out,i:] the asymmetric scaling of the current image.
desaturated
[out,i:] 1, if the image is desaturated.

CONFIGURATION FILE EXAMPLE

This is the default configuration, as contained in the _fim_default_config_file_contents variable.

# $LastChangedDate: 2018-01-21 17:19:31 +0100 (Sun, 21 Jan 2018) $
# Contents of the default ’fimrc’ file, hardcoded in the fim executable.
# Read the documentation (man fimrc) to discover how to change this default hardcoded file and how to make your own.
# Note that usually a ~/.fimrc file is read after these options take effect, so you could reset all of this with ease.
# Lines beginning with a pound (#) are ignored by fim (they are treated as comments).
#
# Internal variables.
# Some of these variables influence Fim’s behaviour (input variables), some are set by Fim (output variables).
# It is wise the input variables are set at the beginning of the file, so the bottom may issue commands correctly affected by them.
