RAIN(6) 							 BSD Games Manual							   RAIN(6)

rain -- animated raindrops display SYNOPSIS
rain [-d delay] DESCRIPTION
The output of rain is modeled after the VAX/VMS program of the same name. To obtain the proper effect, either the terminal must be set for 9600 baud or the -d option must be used to specify a delay, in milliseconds, between each update. A reasonable delay is 120; the default is 0. AUTHORS

tload - graphic representation of system load average SYNOPSIS
tload [-V] [-s scale] [ -d delay ] [tty] DESCRIPTION
tload prints a graph of the current system load average to the specified tty (or the tty of the tload process if none is specified). Options The -s scale option allows a vertical scale to be specified for the display (in characters between graph ticks); thus, a smaller value rep- resents a larger scale, and vice versa. The -d delay sets the delay between graph updates in seconds. FILES
/proc/loadavg load average information SEE ALSO
ps(1), top(1), uptime(1), w(1) BUGS
The -d delay option sets the time argument for an alarm(2); if -d 0 is specified, the alarm is set to 0, which will never send the SIGALRM and update the display. AUTHORS
