NAME
       Kaleidescope - rotating line segments

SYNOPSIS
       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]

DESCRIPTION
       The kaleidescope program draws line segments in a  symmetric  pattern  that  evolves  over
       time.

OPTIONS
       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
	       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.

       -nsegments integer
	       The number of segments to draw. Default is 7.

       -ntrails integer
	       The number of trails to draw. Default is 100.

       -local_rotation integer
	       The rate at which segments rotate around their center. Default is -59.

       -global_rotation integer
	       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.

       -delay microseconds
	       How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation.   Default
	       is 20000, or about 5 frames a second.

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.
