pedal - pretty geometric picture program
pedal [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window] [-root] [-delay seconds] [-maxlines number] [-fad- edelay useconds] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual]
The pedal program displays pretty geometric pictures.
pedal accepts the following options: -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -foreground color The color for the foreground. Default is white. -background color The color for the background. Default is black. -delay seconds The number of seconds to pause between each picture. -maxlines number The maximum number of lines in the drawing. Good values are between 20 and 2000. Maximum value is 16K. -fadedelay microseconds The number of micro seconds to take when fading in and out. -mono Don't do fading. Pretend we're on a monochrome display. To make your X server grunt under load, and to impress your friends, try pedal -mono -delay 0 -maxlines 100.
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.
