XScreenSaver(1) 			       General Commands Manual				      XScreenSaver(1)

NAME
twang - pluck pieces of the screen
SYNOPSIS
twang [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-shm] [-no-shm] [-delay microseconds] [-border-color color] [-border-width inte- ger] [-event-chance fraction] [-friction fraction] [-springiness fraction] [-tile-size integer] [-transference fraction]
DESCRIPTION
Twang divides the screen into equal-sized tiles, and then plucks them in various ways. Tiles are affected by their neighbors, so waves of motion flow through the grid. This manpage describes v1.3 of the program.
OPTIONS
twang 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 Which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual. -shm -no-shm Use the shared memory extension (or not, respectively), if available. This may speed things up a bit, but probably won't make that much difference. If available, defaults to true, resource useSHM. -delay microseconds The interframe delay, in microseconds. Defaults to 10000, resource delay. -border-color color Color of the border surrounding each tile. Defaults to blue, resource borderColor. -border-width integer Width of the border surrounding each tile. Defaults to 3, resource borderWidth. -event-chance fraction The chance, per iteration, for an event to occur (such as tweaking the orientation of a tile), in the range 0..1. Defaults to 0.01, resource eventChance. -friction fraction How much friction there is in the system, in the range 0..1. This is the amount by which velocities are damped per iteration. Defaults to 0.05, resource friction. -springiness fraction How springy the tiles are, in the range 0..1. This is the fraction of an orientation that gets turned into a velocity towards the center (resting point). Defaults to 0.1, resource springiness. -tile-size integer Size (width and height) of each tile, not including the outer edge of the border. Defaults to 120, resource tileSize. -transference fraction How much a tile's neighbors affect it, in the range 0..1. This is the fraction of an orientation of a neighbor that gets turned into a velocity in the same direction Defaults to 0.025, resource transfer- ence.
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.
X RESOURCES
There are resource equivalents for each option, noted above.
BUGS
twang should have more interesting events. Ways of speeding it up need to be investigated. It's kinda sluggish, especially on hugeass displays.
