Kaleidescope - rotating line segments
kaleidescope [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-win-
dow] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual] [-color_mode mono | nice | greedy] [-nsegments
int] [-ntrails int] [-local_rotation int] [-global_rotation int] [-delay usecs] [-redmin
int] [-greenmin int] [-bluemin int] [-redrange int] [-greenrange int] [-bluerange int]
The kaleidescope program draws line segments in a symmetric pattern that evolves over
kaleidescope accepts the following options:
-root Draw on the root window.
-color_mode mono | nice | greedy
Specify how kaleidescope uses colors. Mono uses just the default foreground and
background colors. Nice uses one color for each segment (specified by nsegments).
Greedy uses (ntrails * nsegments) + 1 colors.
Install a private colormap for the window.
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.
The number of segments to draw. Default is 7.
The number of trails to draw. Default is 100.
The rate at which segments rotate around their center. Default is -59.
The rate at which segments rotate around the center of the window. Default is 1.
-redmin, -greenmin, -bluemin, -redrange, -greenrange, -bluerange
All take an integer argument. When colors are randomly chosen, they are chosen
from the interval min to min plus range. The minimums default to 30000. The ranges
default to 20000.
How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation. Default
is 20000, or about 5 frames a second.
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.
