9description     Keep ssh and telnet connections from dropping due to inactivity
10long_description          Spinner is a small program that displays a little "spinning" \
11                          ASCII character in the top left corner of your terminal. \
12                          To make this effect it cycles through punctuation marks like \
13                          this " - \ | / - \ | / ... " (try it to see). By default the \
14                          character is drawn in inverse video (or your terminal's equivalent). \
15                          But you can turn this off with the -i switch. It supports any \
16                          terminal capable of handling VT100 style escape codes.\
17                          Spinner is useful for keeping telnet and ssh links from dropping \
18                          due to inactivity. Many firewalls, and some ISPs drop connections \
19                          when they are perceived as idle. By having spinner running the \
20                          server is constantly sending a tiny amount of data over the link, \
21                          preserving the connection. Thus Spinner is an anti-dle, timeout \
22                          preventing, background daemon process for unix variants including linux.
