View Images in an xterm?


A few days ago I read somewhere that you could view images on a terminal window.. I can't seem to find the link now. Does anybody know how? I know you can run X apps by connecting with an ssh tunnel.. but I dont want to run a seperate application. The article talked about installing some kind of terminal graphics library.

Does anybody know what I am talking about..

Well, you can view graphics on the console with zgv or w3m. The library in question is probably svgalib. Don't know much more than that, unfortunately.
