XScreenSaver(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  XScreenSaver(1)

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

SYNOPSIS
       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]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       noseguy accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -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.

       -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.

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.
