NAME
ljlatest - prints the most recent public posts on livejournal.com. SYNOPSIS
ljlatest [--verbose] [--columns N] DESCRIPTION
The ljlatest script reads the most recent public posts made to livejournal.com, and prints them on stdout, after doing a rudimentary con- version of HTML to plain text. This script is just a wrapper around xscreensaver-text --url http://www.livejournal.com/stats/latest-rss.bml As of XScreenSaver 4.21, you can just use use above URL in the "Text URL" field on the "Advanced" tab in xscreensaver-demo(1). BUGS
This program makes it seem like morons have invaded your screen saver. The output is always ISO-8859-1, regardless of locale. SEE ALSO

NAME
xscreensaver-text - prints some text to stdout, for use by screen savers. SYNOPSIS
xscreensaver-text [--verbose] [--columns N] [--text STRING] [--file PATH] [--program CMD] [--url URL] DESCRIPTION
The xscreensaver-text script prints out some text for use by various screensavers, according to the options set in the ~/.xscreensaver file. This may dump the contents of a file, run a program, or load a URL. OPTIONS
xscreensaver-text accepts the following options: --columns N or --cols N Where to wrap lines; default 72 columns. --verbose or -v Print diagnostics to stderr. Multiple -v switches increase the amount of output. Command line options may be used to override the settings in the ~/.xscreensaver file: --string STRING Print the given string. It may contain % escape sequences as per strftime(2). --file PATH Print the contents of the given file. If --cols is specified, re-wrap the lines; otherwise, print them as-is. --program CMD Run the given program and print its output. If --cols is specified, re-wrap the output. --url HTTP-URL Download and print the contents of the HTTP document. If it contains HTML, RSS, or Atom, it will be converted to plain-text. Note: this re-downloads the document every time it is run! It might be considered abusive for you to point this at a web server that you do not control! ENVIRONMENT
HTTP_PROXY or http_proxy to get the default HTTP proxy host and port. BUGS
The RSS and Atom output is always ISO-8859-1, regardless of locale. URLs should be cached, use "If-Modified-Since", and obey "Expires". SEE ALSO
