       noseguy - a little guy with a big nose wanders around being witty

       noseguy	[-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color] [-background color] [-text-
       foreground color] [-text-background  color]  [-font  font]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]
       [-visual visual] [-mode mode] [-program program] [-filename le] [-text text]

       A  little  man  with  a big nose and a hat runs around spewing out messages to the screen.
       This code (and its bitmaps) were extracted from the xnlock program.

       noseguy accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.	This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

	       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.

       -font font
	       The font used for the messages.

       -mode [ program | file | string ]
	       In  program  mode, the messages are gotten by running a program.  The program used
	       is controlled by the -program option, and the .program resource.

	       In filename mode, the message used is the contents of a file.  The  file  used  is
	       controlled by the -file option, and the .filename resource.

	       In  string  mode, the message is whatever was specified on the command line as the
	       -text option, or in the resource database as the .text resource.

       -program program
	       If mode is program (the default), then this program will be run periodically,  and
	       its output will be the text of the messages.  The default program is "fortune -s",
	       but yow is also a good choice.

       -filename file
	       If mode is file, then the contents of this file will be used for all messages.

       -text string
	       If mode is string, then this text will be used for all messages.

       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.
