Matrix Console
==============

A Matrix-style terminal animation and screensaver 

Matrix Console displays RSS feeds in a manner similar to those consoles
in The Matrix film. It works in terminals (like xterm or gnome-terminal), 
as a standalone GTK+ window, or as a screensaver.

Options
=======

Usage: matrix-console.py [options]

Options:
  -h, --help         show this help message and exit
  -g GUI, --gui=GUI  Wrap the console in a GUI window: gtk
  -f, --fullscreen   Use fullscreen window
  -n, --no-www       Don't access the Internet

Configuration
=============

Preferences are stored in ~/.config/matrix-console.conf. 
It is a ini-style file. 
Options are specified using a key name separated by equal sign or colon.
