tpp <OPTIONS> <FILE>
Tpp stands for text presentation program and is an ncurses-based presentation tool. The presentation can be written with your favorite editor in a simple description format and then shown on any text terminal that is supported by ncurses - ranging from an old VT100 to the Linux framebuffer to an xterm.
It supports color, various output modes, sliding in text, command prompt, LaTeX conversion and more.

The tpp presentation formats consists of normal text lines and special commands. Special commands are contained in lines that begin with "--" and the command name.
See /usr/share/doc/tpp/README.gz for complete list of command names, and /usr/share/doc/tpp/examples for TPP presentation examples, including presentation slides that have been in real-life presentations.
