Cmatrix is a command line tool that creates a matrix-like animation on your terminal screen. It is inspired by the "Matrix" movie. When you run cmatrix, it displays a scrolling green matrix of characters that mimics the computer code seen in the movie. It creates a visually appealing and retro effect on your terminal.

Cmatrix is often used for fun and aesthetic purposes. It is available on various Unix-like operating systems, including Linux, FreeBSD, and macOS. Some Linux distributions even provide it as a pre-installed package.

The tool offers several options to modify the appearance and behavior of the matrix animation. For example, you can change the color of the matrix, increase or decrease the speed of the scrolling characters, add fading effects, and more. These options provide flexibility for customization and personalization.

While cmatrix primarily serves as a visual gimmick, it can be entertaining to run it on your terminal or include it in scripts as a part of a larger visual experience. However, it doesn't have any practical utility and is mainly used for entertainment purposes or nostalgic references to the "Matrix" movie.
