Except that you have to use the mouse in order to actually see the image
that you ask for with "gqview <file>".  I would LOVE to get rid of xv, but I
need a viewer that, like xv:

- is usable from the command line without the mouse for quickly viewing a
  file or a list of files (i.e. space-backspace in xv) and scaling them (M
  and -/= in xv)

- autoscales images on startup to fit on the display, so that the whole
  image can be seen (e.g., not display(1))

- is fast to start up and shutdown (e.g., also not display(1))

Does a free program with these features exist yet?

 - mdz
