NAME

update-xanim-modules - download updated modules for xanim  

SYNOPSIS

update-xanim-modules [--sanitation] [path]  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page briefly documents the update-xanim-modules command.

update-xanim-modules downloads updated video decoders for the xanim video player from the author's FTP site, and installs them in /usr/lib/xanim. It then records the downloaded files for deinstallation when this package is removed.

These modules may be useful if you have animations in egregiously non-free formats you wish to display. However, because the author is unable to distribute source for them, you should consider whether you trust him enough to install his code sight unseen on your system. I (Chris Lawrence) have not seen the source code for these modules and therefore cannot make any guarantees as to its security implications. Caveat downloader.  

OPTIONS

--sanitation
Clean up your /usr/lib/xanim/xanim-modules file. Automatically called by the postinst when upgrading from versions that did Bad Things to this file.

URL to use as an FTP proxy for downloading the modules. Normally an HTTP URL of the form http://HOST:PORT/
