I just discovered that after the 5.1.0 upgrade, this is what you now get from eips with no parameters:
Code:

usage:
to print strings: eips [row] [col] [-h] string
		 -h for highlighted text
to show image: eips -g|-b image_path [-w waveform -f -x xpos -y ypos -v]
		 -g for png, -b for bitmap
		 -w waveform can be gc16 gl16 or du, default is gc16
		 -f for full update, default is partial update
		 -x -y in units of pixels
		 -v for inverted picture
to paint a retangle on screen: eips -d l=a,w=b,h=c [-x xx -y yy -w wf]
		 a is gray level in hex, b is width, c is height, with optional xx yy location, waveform mode
to clear display: eips -c 
to paint checker: eips -q 
to paint grayscale: eips -l 
to paint pattern: eips -p 
to paint barcode: eips -r barcode
to print fb info: eips -i

This is MUCH better than just experimenting and hoping to find something useful in the previously undocumented parameter list (using startup scripts as examples).

I already knew most of these, but the ones I did not know how to use look quite useful. I like that "paint a gray rectangle" option, and the bitmap support.

Thanks amazon and lab126!

while :;do eips -q -wdu;usleep 130000;eips -v -q -wdu;usleep 130000;done (K5)

Just to say that

[root@kindle root]# eips -g /mnt/us/usr/bin/pictures/gameboy.png

works okay on a 3

but actually

[root@kindle root]# eips -g /mnt/us/usr/bin/pictures/gameboy.jpg

works good as well
