NAME
       flag - draws a waving flag, containing text or an image

SYNOPSIS
       flag  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color]  [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  integer]  [-delay  microseconds]
       [-cycles integer] [-size integer] [-text string] [-font font] [-bitmap xbm-file]

DESCRIPTION
       The flag program draws a waving flag that contains text or a bitmap.

OPTIONS
       flag accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.	This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       -install
	       Install a private colormap for the window.

       -visual visual
	       Specify	which visual to use.  Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the
	       id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.

       -ncolors integer
	       How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 200.

       -cycles integer

       -count integer

       -size integer
	       How large the pixels in the flag should be, from 1 to 8.  If this  is  a  negative
	       number, the pixel size is chosen randomly from the range 1 to -size.  Default -7.

       -text text
	       The  text  to  display in the flag.  Multiple lines of text are allowed; the lines
	       will be displayed centered atop one another.  Default: none.  If the text  is  the
	       magic  string  "(default)",  then  the text used will be the local machine name; a
	       newline; and the local OS version.

       -bitmap xbm-file
	       The bitmap to display in the flag; this must be an XBM file (color  XPMs  are  not
	       allowed.)  Default: none.  If the bitmap is the magic string "(default)", then the
	       bitmap used will be a charming little picture of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs.

	       If neither -text nor -bitmap are specified, then either the builtin  text  or  the
	       builtin bitmap will be chosen randomly.

       -font font
	       The font in which to draw the text; the default is "-*-helvetica-bold-r-*-240-*".

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
	       to  get	the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in
	       the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
