Please see https://github.com/MarcelWaldvogel/vbaud/ for updates and
license of the source code.

The license (and authors) of the animation files are unknown, except
where the authors are shown in the file themselves. Please
let me know if you have any hints.

- cowscene.vt.gz: Someone from U-Mass (?)
- frworks.vt.gz: Shen Lin
- outerlim.vt.gz: Rudy T. Borkowski
- torture.vt.gz: Joe Smith, 1985-05-08
- valentn.vt.gz: Dave (?)

--------------------------------------------------------------------

These files contain animations for VT100 terminals and compatibles
(i.e., most of today's terminal emulators, e.g. Terminal, Konsole,
xterm, you name it). On a Unix/Linux/... system, you can do this
as follows:

% gzip -dc filename.vt.gz

or

% gunzip *.gz
% cat filename.vt

Unless you use a real terminal over a serial line, the animations may be
way too fast. So I have provided a rate limiter as well:

[Download vbaud.c]
% make vbaud
(or "cc -o vbaud vbaud.c")

Then, the following command

% gzip -dc filename.vt.gz | ./vbaud 2400

will give you the real 80's animation feeling!
In case something goes wrong or you hit Ctrl-C,
it is good to have practiced typing:

% reset

blindly to recover the terminal settings back to default.
