The imsmap program generates map or cloud-like patterns. It looks quite different in monochrome and color.
imsmap 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 to use. Default 50. -delay integer How long to delay between images. Default 10 seconds. -iterations integer A measure of the resolution of the resultant image, from 0 to 7. Default 7. -mode [ hue | saturation | value | random ] The axis upon which colors should be interpolated between the foreground and background color. Default random. -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.
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.
