This project is a command line tool called
nms that recreates the famous data decryption effect seen on the screen in the 1992 hacker movie, Sneakers.

Someone has endeavored to create software that makes the same effect via the command line. To install just run the commands below in order:
To use it, just run any command that displays output and throw the

sneakers command that displays exactly the content of the Sneakers movie:
If you want to
uninstall just enter the repository you cloned, run the command:
sudo make uninstall and remove the repository from your computer:
