a scriptable frame buffer and ascii art image viewer

FIM is a highly customizable and scriptable image viewer targeted at the users who are confortable with software like the Vim text editor or the Mutt mail user agent (it aims to be a swiss army knife for viewing images). It is based on the Fbi image viewer (by Gerd Hoffmann), and works primarily in the Linux framebuffer console. It is multidevice : it has X support, too (via the SDL library) and it supports ascii art output (via the aalib library). It is capable of regular expressions based (on filename) image viewing,vim-like autocommands, it offers GNU readline command line autocompletion and history, completely customizable key bindings, external/internal (if-while based) scriptability (through return codes, standard input/output, and commands given at invocation time, initialization file), internal filename-based image search, and much more features.
Package version:0.3-beta-prerelease-1.3+b1


fim for Debian

There are lots of ./configure options and customizations missing in
this  binary build (e.g.: SDL (X) support).

If you are interested in them, please read fim's documentation and 
build it from sources.

 And in order to have a *working* configuration file, issue:
