The hspresent package

[Tags: bsd3, library, program]

Hspresent is a simple program that lets you give powerpoint-like presentations in your terminal (for certain definitions of powerpoint-like). It's extremely basic and unintelligent. Don't expect much.

Invoke like `hspresent pathtoyourpresentation`. Left and right arrow keys move between slides, and hitting q or Ctrl-C quits the presentation.

The file format is really simple right now. Slides are separated by lines consisting of the characters --. You can put the single character . on a line to demarcate a split frame. A split frame really creates a new frame with the contents of the previous frame copied at the front (this is similar to how beamer works).
