ImageMagick uses a hell of a lot more memory than a plain viewer such as qiv or xzgv. also xzgv I believe has some crude file management functions (something I miss in qiv..) Both being imlib-based, if xzgv can do fullscreen display and image scaling, I'm likely to give up qiv. -- Joseph Carter <email@example.com> Debian Linux developer http://tank.debian.net GnuPG key pub 1024D/DCF9DAB3 sub 2048g/3F9C2A43 http://www.debian.org 20F6 2261 F185 7A3E 79FC 44F9 8FF7 D7A3 DCF9 DAB3 <netgod> is it me, or is Knghtbrd snoring? <joeyh> they killed knghtbrd! <netgod> Kysh: wichert, gecko, joeyh, and I are in a room trying to ignore Knghtbrd <Kysh> netgod: Knghtbrd is hard to ignore.
