AsmView is a text file viewer.
usage: asmview file
asmview < file
cat file | asmview
If no file name is provided or if a bad filename is provided the program displays a file selection window.
AsmView reads a file into memory and converts all non-text (binary) data to "." (period) characters. The data is then displayed in a window. The data can be scrolled in any direction.
Long lines will extend beyond the right edge of the screen and can be viewed with the right-arrow key.

Search strings can be entered by typing a normal text character. The search string will appear on the status line (bottom of the display). The search string keys are:
text key - appended to current search string
rubout - removes the last text character entered
Enter - begins search
Searching always begins from the second line of currently displayed page and all matches are positioned on the top line of the display. To continue searching, just keep pressing < Enter >. To start a search from the top of file, type < home > and then either < Enter > or a new search string followed by < Enter >
All non-control keys are assumed to be part of a search string and will be shown at the bottom of the screen.
