       spotlight - move spotlight around desktop

       spotlight [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay usecs] [-radius pixels]

       The spotlight program takes an image and exposes small sections of it as if through a wan-
       dering spotlight beam.

       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.

       spotlight 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.

       -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.

       -delay microseconds
	       Slow it down.

       -radius pixels
	       Radius of the spotlight in pixels.

       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.
