|Description:||Scrolling random text effect like The Matrix (1.2a-1015)|
Cool screen effect which scrolls random lines of text like 'The Matrix', my fave movie. If you haven't seen this movie and you are a fan of computers or sci-fi in general, go see it! An X11 font is also included in the distribution =-) try CMatrix with the mtx.pcf font loaded in a transparent aterm...
You will need a terminfo file capable of displaying color. Visit Mac OS X hints for instructions on setting this up: <http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20020408225741777> If you are just running this in Apple's Terminal, i.e. no xwindows, you could probably download a TrueType "matrix" font and use that (please send me the url if you find one). My terminal is configured to use the font "#PilGi", a symbol font which looks nice with cmatrix (Jaguar only?), the window background is black with 17% transparency, and scrollback buffer disabled. Then try: cmatrix -fab cmatrix -fabx (for xwindows) Type reset to restore default term colors when you quit cmatrix.
