DESCRIPTION
The halo program draws cool patterns based on circles.
OPTIONS
halo 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. -count integer How many circles to draw. Default 0, meaning random. -mode seuss | ramp | random In seuss mode, alternating striped curves will be drawn. In ramp mode, a color ramp will be drawn. random means pick the mode randomly. -delay microseconds How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation. Default 100000, or about 0.1 second. -colors integer How many colors to use. Default 100. -animate If specified, then the centerpoints of the circles will bounce around. Otherwise, the circles will be drawn once, erased, and a new set of circles will be drawn. -cycle -no-cycle Whether to do colormap cycling. Default is to cycle. -cycle-delay Number of microseconds between shifts of the colormap; default 100000, or 1/10th second.
