WeatherSpect provides a reasonably accurate simulation of what the weather looks like outside.
Version: 1.8WeatherSpect provides a reasonably accurate simulation of what the weather looks like outside, in ASCII art. WeatherSpect includes rain, snow, lightning, sleet, and hail.
Operating System: Linux
The windspeed and cloudiness are reflected in the velocity and quantity of clouds. There are trees that age, reproduce and die over the course of an hour, and a sun and moon that slowly cross the sky for 12 hours each. There's also a dancing turtle.
WeatherSpect is a single perl script, so all you have to do is make sure it's executable and put it somewhere convenient, like /usr/local/bin or /usr/local/games.
Before weatherspect will work, you have to create a config file for it. Running it with the -c option will prompt you for info to create a config file in ~/.weatherspect.
weatherspect [-f < config_file >]
weatherspect -c [-f < config file >]
-h Print this help message
-f < file > Supply a config file to use instead of the default
-c Generate a config file
While weatherspect is running, the following commands are available:
u Force an update of weather data
r Redraw. Note that this will remove all objects and recreate them, probably in
different places. It is intended to be used after resizing the screen.
· You must have the Term::Animation and Weather::Underground modules, which you can get from http://www.cpan.org. The Term::Animation module also requires the Curses module, which you can also get from CPAN.
What's New in This Release:
· A bug that generated errors when the weather data did not include sun/moon rise/set time was fixed.
