Catpoint is a simple viewer of text files written in curses. Further documentation comes in a series of slides. Just do:

$ make && ./catpoint showoff/*.txt

How to easily create a presentation for catpoint from some md file is then:

% cat | md2point
% catpoint *.txt

catpoint file.txt


In 2017 I simply took over catpoint and relicensed it under GPLv3 to protect it against military and villain Open Source customers. If the original author does not like this, contact me at my email address and will find a solution.
