       xscreensaver-getimage-file - put a randomly-selected image on the root window

       xscreensaver-getimage-file [-display host:display.screen] [--verbose] [--name] directory

       The xscreensaver-getimage-file program is a helper program for the xscreensaver hacks that
       manipulate images.  Specifically, it is invoked	by  xscreensaver-getimage(1)  as  needed.
       This is not a user-level command.

       This  program  selects a random image from disk, and loads it on the root window.  It does
       this by figuring out which image-loading programs are installed on the system, and  invok-
       ing the first one it finds.

       xscreensaver-getimage-file accepts the following options:

	   Print diagnostics.

	   Don't load an image: instead just print the file name to stdout.

	   The	directory  to search.	The directory will be searched recursively, and all files
	   in it are assumed to be images.
