       halo - draw circular patterns

       halo  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color]  [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-count int] [-delay  usecs]  [-mode  seuss	|
       ramp | random ] [-animate] [-colors integer] [-cycle] [-no-cycle] [-cycle-delay usecs]

       The halo program draws cool patterns based on circles.

       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 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.

	       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.


	       Whether to do colormap cycling.	Default is to cycle.

	       Number of microseconds between shifts of the colormap; default 100000,  or  1/10th

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

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