'zgv' is a graphics viewer, based around SVGAlib, which can display
GIF87a, GIF89a, JPEG/JFIF, PNG, PBM/PGM/PPM, BMP, and TGA files on a
standard VGA and most SVGAs. It can be used to view single files from
the command line (like 'zgv filename'), but also includes a full-screen
file selector and slide show capability.
