AleVT is a teletext/videotext decoder and browser for the bttv driver (/dev/vbi) and X11.
There's nothing to configure. A simple 'make' is all. If you do not want png support remove the WITH_PNG in the Makefile. Additionally, if you want a smaller font uncomment the "FONT=neep9" line. It gives you 'alevt', 'alevt-date', and 'alevt-cap' and their man pages 'alevt.1x', 'alevt-date.1', and 'alevt-cap.1'.
The program can be installed it where ever you want (i.e. /usr/local/bin). The programs are selfcontained and require no other files. Be careful with 'make install'. It's just for me.
I added a little tool to set the system time from the videotext time. The date is not interpreted (not even transmitted on some channels). So it allows only adjustment of +/-12 hours. The default allowed adjustment is limited to +/-2 hours (use -delta to change). Without the -set option it just display the date in the format of the date command. Look at strftime for possible control sequences you may use in the -format option.
