.TP
\fB\-p\fP, \fB\-\-pos\fP=\fIPOS\fP
This option tells \fBosd_cat\fP where to display the text. \fIPOS\fP can be \fBtop\fP, \fBmiddle\fP, or \fBbottom\fP. The 
default is \fBtop\fP.
.TP
\fB\-o\fP, \fB\-\-offset\fP=\fIOFFSET\fP
This option specifies the \fIoffset\fP from the top or bottom of screen the text is 
displayed. The default is \fB0\fP.
.TP
\fB\-A\fP, \fB\-\-align\fP=\fIALIGN\fP
This option tells \fBosd_cat\fP where to display the text. \fIALIGN\fP can be \fBleft\fP, \fBright\fP or \fBcenter\fP. The 
default is \fBleft\fP.
.TP
\fB\-i\fP, \fB\-\-indent\fP=\fIOFFSET\fP
This option specifies the \fIINDENT\fP from the left of screen the text is displayed. The default is \fB0\fP.
.TP
\fB\-f\fP, \fB\-\-font\fP=\fIFONT\fP
This option specifies the \fIFONT\fP to be used for displaying the text. The default is \fBfixed\fP.
.TP
\fB\-c\fP, \fB\-\-color\fP=\fICOLOR\fP
This option specifies the \fICOLOR\fP to be used for displaying the text. The default is \fBred\fP.

.TP
\fB\-s\fP, \fB\-\-shadow\fP=\fIOFFSET\fP

\fB\-a\fP, \fB\-\-age\fP[=\fISCROLL_AGE\fP]
This option affects screen redrawing. If \fISCROLL_AGE\fP seconds pass

all lines are cleared at once instead of being scrolled off as new lines
replace old lines. The default is \fB0\fP.
.br

\fIDELAY\fP is used.
.TP
\fB\-w\fP, \fB\-\-wait

This option specified the position of the percentage / slider bar.
\fIPERCENTAGE\fP may be in the range from \fB0\fP to \fB100\fP, the default is \fB50\fP.
.TP
\fB\-T\fP, \fB\-\-text\fP=\fITEXT\fP
This option specifies an optional \fITEXT\fP which gets displayed above the percentage bar.
The default is empty, so no additional text is displayed.
.TP
\fB\-h\fP, \fB\-\-help\fP
display help (which is often more up to date) and exit
.PP
With no \fIFILE\fP, or when \fIFILE\fP is \fB\-\fP, read standard input.
