Show displays text files in a terminal and formats to the terminal emulator display window but adds no other characters on the screen. Show is great for screencasts and presentations.

Commands:

show file1.txt file2.txt file3.txt (...more files) = display the contents
of each file one at a time.

show --help = shows this help page.

You can give show as many files to work with as you like, just list one
after another in the order you'd like to display them. Pressing any key
will advance to the next file. The screen will be cleared but the user can
scroll up to see the contents of the last file displayed. Pressing any key
after the files have all been displayed will add a line to the bottom of
the screen letting you know that there are no more files. Press any key
once again to clear the screen and exit the program.

Note: You must give show at least one file name to work with or it exits
with an error.
