Asciiquarium v1.1 by Kirk Baucom <firstname.lastname@example.org> http://www.robobunny.com Asciiquarium is an aquarium/sea animation in ASCII art. Installation ------------ Asciiquarium is a single perl script, so all you have to do is make sure it's executable and put it somewhere convenient, like /usr/local/bin or /usr/local/games. Ubuntu ------ Out-of-the-box ubuntu doesn't satisfy the Requirements below, so here's how to get them: 1) Get perl's curses package which is available from apt: sudo apt-get install libcurses-perl 2) Run cpan at the shell. Agree to the defaults for everything. To leave cpan, type quit 3) Type sudo cpan Term::Animation Requirements ------------ You must have the Term::Animation module, which you can get from http://www.cpan.org. The Term::Animation module also requires the Curses module, which you can also get from CPAN. This program will only run on platforms that have a Curses library (so it won't work on Windows, but you might get it to run under cygwin). Usage ----- Command line arguments: -c "classic" mode, only show species from Asciiquarium 1.0 While running: q quit r redraw (will recreate all entities) p toggle pause Contributors ------------ New fish species backported from the Android live wallpaper and other minor improvements by Claudio Matsuoka. Pretty much all of the ASCII art was done by Joan Stark: http://www.geocities.com/SoHo/7373/ Anything that she didn't do, I don't have a source for.
