The slip program does lots of blits and chews up an image.
The image that it manipulates will be grabbed from the portion of the screen underlying
the window, or from the system's video input, or from a random file on disk, as indicated
by the grabDesktopImages, grabVideoFrames, and chooseRandomImages options in the
~/.xscreensaver file; see xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.
slip 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 a private colormap for the window.
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.
How many colors should be used (if possible). Default 128. The colors used cycle
through the hue, making N stops around the color wheel.
How many whooziwhatsis to generate. Default 35.
How long to frobnicate. Default 50.
How long we should wait between drawing each step. Default 50000, or about 1/20th
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.
