       xteevee - Simulate various TV problems

       xteevee	[-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]  [-visual visual]
       [-cycle] [-no-cycle] [-static] [-no-static] [-roll] [-no-roll] [-bars] [-no-bars]

       xteevee simulates various television problems, fondly re-creating the days when	computers
       were  fun  and I spent my time with an Atari 400 hooked up to a black-and-white TV I found
       in someone's trash.

       When run, xteevee picks a mode to display  from	the  available	options.   If  modes  are
       explicitly  set	on  the  command-line,	they  over-ride  the implicit options and will be
       choosen among exclusively.  If modes are explicitly excluded from  the  command-line,  the
       they are simply removed from contention.

       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.

       xteevee 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.

       -cycle  Cycle through all the available modes.  This is the default.

	       Don't cycle modes.

       -static Explicitly select the "static" mode.

	       Explicitly forbid the "static" mode.

       -roll   Explicitly select the "vertical roll" mode.

	       Explicitly forbid the "vertical roll" mode.

       -bars   Explicitly select the "color bars" mode.

	       Explicitly forbid the "color bars" mode.

       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.

       Notable X resources supported include the following:

       static, roll and bars are booleans, defining which modes are to be implicitly available if
       xteevee	is  run  without  command-line	mode selections.  cycle is a boolean, defining if
       xteevee should cycle through each available mode or pick one and stick with it.	delayMode
       and  delayBetween  are  integers,  defining how long each mode should be displayed and how
       long the time between them should be if cycle is on.  staticSignal is an integer, defining
       the strength of the signal during the "static" mode, as a percentage.

       xteevee should simulate more TV problems.
