FIM: Fbi IMproved

Lightweight universal image viewer for framebuffer and X.

FIM is a lightweight universal image viewer, mostly for GNU/Linux (but not only). FIM aims to be a highly customizable and scriptable image viewer for users who are comfortable with software like the VIM text editor or the Mutt mail user agent. It has been developed with GNU/Linux in mind, but can be built to run on several Unix systems or even on MS-Windows.
