Perigee Slideshow is a command line program that searches a directory for supported graphic files and displays them in a slideshow. It has the ability to search subdirectories, as well as to sort files by creation date, modification date, or path name. Alternatively, it will accept a prebuilt list of image files from a file or standard input.
|Next slide||Page Down, Enter, Space, right arrow key, left mouse button, or mouse wheel down|
|Prev slide||Page Up, left arrow key, right mouse button, or mouse wheel up|
Note that the auto-advance timer will automatically stop if you manually change slides. You can press 't' to start it up again.

Perigee Slideshow uses the SDL_image library to load pictures. When searching directories, it looks for files matching these extensions (case insensitively):
Visual C++ 9.0 project files and a Makefile for UNIX-like systems are included. SDL and SDL_image development libraries are required on both platforms.
A Win32 graphical front end is also provided in the ssfront
I have no plans to create a graphical front end for any other platform,
but you're more than welcome to do so if you want to.
