NAMEupdate-xanim-modules - download updated modules for xanim
SYNOPSISupdate-xanim-modules [--sanitation] [path]
DESCRIPTIONThis 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.
