NAME
       rorschach - simulate ink-blot patterns

SYNOPSIS
       rorschach [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono]	[-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-iterations  integer]  [-offset  integer]
       [-xsymmetry] [-ysymmetry] [-erase-mode integer] [-erase-speed usecs] [-delay secs]

DESCRIPTION
       The  rorschach program draws random patterns reminiscent of the psychological test of same
       name.

OPTIONS
       rorschach accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       -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.

       -iterations integer
	       How many dots should be drawn each time.  Default 4000.

       -offset integer
	       How far apart the dots should be.  Default 4 pixels.

       -xsymmetry
	       Whether the images should be horizontally symmetrical.  Default true.

       -ysymmetry
	       Whether the images should be vertically symmetrical.  Default false.

       -erase-mode integer
	       This  sets the erase mode. Mode -1 chooses a random mode each time. There are cur-
	       rently 6 modes defined (0-5).

       -erase-speed usecs
	       This controls the speed at which the screen will be erased. (Delay between erasing
	       of individual lines.)

       -delay seconds
	       This sets the number of seconds that the figure will be on the screen.

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.

BUGS
       May call your sanity into question.
