NAME
       starfish - radially-symmetric throbbing colormap-hacking graphics demo

SYNOPSIS
       starfish  [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay usecs] [-delay2  secs]  [-cycle-delay2
       usecs]  [-thickness pixels] [-rotation degrees] [-duration seconds] [-colors int] [-cycle]
       [-no-cycle] [-blob] [-no-blob]

DESCRIPTION
       The starfish program draws radially symmetric objects, which expand, contract, rotate, and
       turn  inside  out.   It	uses  these shapes to lay down a field of smooth colors, and then
       rotates the colormap.

OPTIONS
       starfish 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.

       -delay microseconds
	       How  much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation.  Default
	       10000, or about 1/100th second.

       -cycle-delay microseconds
	       How long to wait between shifing the colormap by one  step.   Default  100000,  or
	       about 1/10th second.

       -thickness pixels
	       How  wide  each color band should be.  Default 0, meaning random (the chosen value
	       will be between 0 and 15.)

       -rotation degrees
	       How quickly the objects should rotate at each step.   Default  0,  meaning  random
	       (the chosen value will be between 0 and 12 degrees.)

       -colors int
	       How  many  colors to use.  Default 200.	The more colors, the smoother the transi-
	       tions will be, and the nicer the resultant images.

       -cycle

       -no-cycle
	       Whether to do colormap cycling.	Default true.

       -duration seconds
	       How long to run before choosing a new shape.  Default 30 seconds.

       -delay2 seconds
	       When duration expires, how long to wait before starting a new run.  Default 5 sec-
	       onds.

       -blob

       -no-blob
	       If blob option is specified, then the raw shapes will be shown, instead of a field
	       of colors generated from them.

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.
