*smile*  Did  I,  by any chance, mention xview (as in xv)?  I  don't  know
anything about a program named /xnview/, so I couldn't have mentioned that
name.  xview  is  only  a  viewer, which I believe  is  somehow  bound  to
ImageMagick.  Its command-line nature makes it scriptable, so you can  run
slideshow using 10-character 'scripts'. Very neat. Very powerful, once you
explore all the options.

To  defend  my  point,  if  you  view the following  page  on  my  site  <
http://www.schestowitz.com/introduction.htm  >,  then  you  will  see  the
output that comes from my simple ImageMagick scripts, which are simply run
as  cron  jobs, once in ten minutes. Back when I was using  Photoshop  and
Paintshop,  I couldn't have conceived so much function, which is  attained
so  easily.  The  GIMP is scriptable as well, much like Photoshop  and  it
plug-ins (which the GIMP can run by the way)...

Enough drivel... *smile*
