*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*
