       xmatrix - simulates the computer displays from the movie

       xmatrix	[-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]  [-visual visual]
       [-delay usecs] [-density percentage] [-top | -bottom | -both] [-small |	-large]  [-trace]
       [-phone number]

       The  xmatrix  program  draws  dropping characters similar to the displays in the Wachowski
       brothers' film, "The Matrix".

       xmatrix accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.	This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

	       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 usecs
	       The delay between steps of the animation, in microseconds: default 10000.

       -density percentage
	       The  approximate percentage of the screen that should be filled with characters at
	       any given time.	Default 75%.

       -top | -bottom | -both
	       If -top is specified, the characters will only drop in from the top of the  screen
	       as  sliding columns of characters.  If -bottom is specified, then instead of slid-
	       ing columns, the characters will appear as columns that	grow  downwards  and  are
	       erased  from  above.  If -both is specified, then a mixture of both styles will be
	       used.  The default is -both.

       -small | -large
	       These options specify the sizes of the characters.  The default is -large.

       -trace  Start off with a representation of a phone number being traced.	When  the  number
	       is finally found, display The Matrix as usual.

       -phone number
	       The phone number to trace, if -trace is specified.

       -binary Instead of displaying Matrix glyphs, only display ones and zeros.

	       Instead of displaying Matrix glyphs, display hexadecimal digits.

       -dna    Instead	of  displaying	Matrix	glyphs,  display  genetic code (guanine, adenine,
	       thymine, and cytosine.)

	       Produce some messages at random times.

       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.
