# Script to create a slideshow from Xastir snapshot images.  Note
# that this script is Unix/Linux-centric due to the use of the $HOME
# variable and the use of the "cp" command.

# Copies/renames ~/.xastir/tmp/snapshot.png files so that a
# slideshow can be created from the images at a later date.  The
# script monitors the input directory.  Any new snapshot.png file
# that appears is allowed to age for a few seconds to make sure that
# Xastir is done writing the file, then the file is copied to the
# ~/.xastir/tmp/slideshow/ directory as a numbered file.  See below
# for one method for turning these files into an animated GIF, or
# else bring them up in some slideshow program and display them in
# numerical order.  The name of the file contains the Unix Epoch
# timestamp (the exact second that the file was made).
#
#
# A note from Carl Makin, vk1kcm, modified slightly by Curt, we7u,
# regarding creation of an animated GIF from the slideshow images:
#
# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# This will create an animated gif that loops in your browser.
#   gm convert -delay 20 -loop snapshot*.png animation.gif
# See:
#   http://www.graphicsmagick.org/FAQ.html#how-do-i-create-a-gif-animation-sequence-to-display-within-netscape
# I think you can also great mpegs by changing the filename to "animation.mpg".
# -------------------------------------------------------------------

  # of between one per minute, and one per 30 minutes.

    # destination, which prevents copying the file again and again
