XScreenSaver(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  XScreenSaver(1)

NAME
       slip - sucks your screen into a jet engine

SYNOPSIS
       slip  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color]  [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  integer]  [-iterations  integer]
       [-points integer] [-delay microseconds] [-delay2 microseconds]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

OPTIONS
       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
	       Install a private colormap for the window.

	       id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.

       -ncolors integer
	       How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 128.  The colors used cycle

	       How many whooziwhatsis to generate.  Default 35.

       -cycles integer
	       How long to frobnicate.	Default 50.

       -delay microseconds
	       How long we should wait between drawing each step.  Default 50000, or about 1/20th
	       second.

ENVIRONMENT
