NAME

cacaserver - telnet server for libcaca

SYNOPSIS

cacaserver

DESCRIPTION

cacaserver reads libcaca animation files in its standard input and serves them as ANSI art on network port 51914. These animations can be created by any libcaca program by setting the CACA_DRIVER environment variable to raw and piping the program’s standard output to cacaserver.
Clients can then connect to port 51914 using telnet or netcat to see the output.

EXAMPLE

CACA_DRIVER=raw cacademo | cacaserver
telnet localhost 51914
