start it and point your browser to http://localhost:5654/
Pages may be requested either in HTML format (http://local-
host:5654/<page>/ or http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.html) or in
ASCII text format (http://localhost:5654/<page>/<subpage>.txt). Sub-
page "00" can be used for pages without subpages.
-h print a short help text and the default values for all options.
-v dev set vbi device (default: /dev/vbi).
-d enable debug output.

a per-thread limit.
