my software: slowcat

When I dug out my old collection of VT animations and tried to view them on my 600mhz pentium workstation, I was greatly disappointed. They flew by so fast that I could barely make them out. I tried various methods to slow them down, but this little program seems to work the best. Besides, it allows for easily adjusting the display speed.

If you're running a linux system, you can download a compiled binary here. It's pretty old, though. I'd recommend that you download the source file and compile for yourself. It's only a few lines of code.

Thanks to Brian Landsberger, the code now includes an option to use the nanosleep call, if you prefer.

python version

Don't feel like compiling? A dozen or so lines of python will accomplish the same thing: slowcat.py.
