img2xterm (display images on the terminal)

img2xterm is a program that can display bitmap images on 256-colour
terminals by converting them into Unicode block characters and xterm
compatible control sequences. It can also convert images to cowfiles,
for use with cowsay(6).

No checking is done on the terminal size. Each character cell in the
terminal gets a 2x2 block of pixels, so if your terminal is 80x25, the
largest image it can display is 160x50 pixels.

This is known to work with xterm, konsole, rxvt-unicode and
xfce4-terminal from Slackware 14.2; and st from Plain
rxvt doesn't seem to support 256-color mode, so it won't work there.
Sadly, it doesn't work in the Linux console either.

The package includes the GIMP palette mentioned in the, and
an RMS cowfile. Try: cowsay -f rmshd "Hello"
