      1 sent is a simple plaintext presentation tool.
      2 
      3 sent does not need latex, libreoffice or any other fancy file format, it uses
      4 plaintext files to describe the slides and can include images via farbfeld.
      5 Every paragraph represents a slide in the presentation.
      6 
      7 The presentation is displayed in a simple X11 window. The content of each slide
      8 is automatically scaled to fit the window and centered so you also don't have to
      9 worry about alignment. Instead you can really concentrate on the content.

     12 Dependencies
     13 
     14 You need Xlib and Xft to build sent and the farbfeld[0] tools installed to use
     15 images in your presentations.

     17 Demo

     19 To get a little demo, just type
     20 
     21 	make && ./sent example
     22

     26 Usage
     27 
     28 	sent [FILE]
     29 
     30 If FILE is omitted or equals `-`, stdin will be read. Produce image slides by
     31 prepending a `@` in front of the filename as a single paragraph. Lines starting
     32 with `#` will be ignored. A `\` at the beginning of the line escapes `@` and
     33 `#`. A presentation file could look like this:
     34
