NAME aecat - display an aewan document
SYNOPSIS aecat [-b] [-c] [-{n|N}] [{-p | -l <layer_num>}] [-f <format>] [-o <output_file>] input‐ file
DESCRIPTION This is an utility program that will convert an aewan document to ANSI escape sequences so that it can be rendered on a standard terminal. Alternatively, it can also generate HTML code for displaying the document in a web page. Any particular layer of the document may be converted, or you may request a composite of all layers.
OPTIONS -f specifies output format - can "text", "html" or "comment". Default is "text". The "comment" format extracts document metadata. -c prepend a 'clear screen' escape sequence (only valid when outputting text). -o<file> writes output to specified file rather than stdout -b disables output of color (only characters will be printed). -l<layer_no> specifies which layer of the document is to be used (must be an index, not a layer name). By default, layer 0 will be used. -L displays the number of layers in the file. -p exports a composite, that is, overlays all visible layers, paying attention to layer transparency, etc. The size of the composite will be the size of the first layer -n suppress output of newlines -h prints a short help text
