Make the console a fun place while idle! This is a perl script made by RoboBunny.
For RedHat systems:
yum install perl-ExtUtils-MakeMaker perl-Term-Animation -y
The above 2 packages are dependencies for this animation in terminal.
Then download ASCIIquarium from http://robobunny.com/projects/asciiquarium/asciiquarium.tar.gz
Decompress this tar and give it an executable permission (+x).
Copy it over to any location in your $PATH, in my case, I copied to ~/bin
Show the ASCIIquarium by typing asciiquarium
You can quit the animation by pressing “q”.
Another similar cool terminal animation is cmatrix, give it a go 🙂
