lockward — Rotating spinning color-cycling things

Synopsis

lockward [-display displayspec] [-root] [-window] [-visual arg] [-window-id arg] [-delay usec] [-pair] [-fps] [-blink | -no-blink] [-rotateidle-min msec] [-rotateidle-max msec] [-blinkidle-min msec] [-blinkidle-max msec] [-blinkdwell-min msec] [-blinkdwell-max msec]

Description

lockward draws a spinning, rotating set of notched wheels overlaid with some flashing effects, using OpenGL.  It's a sort of cross between the wards in a combination lock and those old information displays that animated via polarized light.

Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default: 20000 (50 frames/sec).

-blink | -no-blink

Enables/disables the blinking effects.  Default: Enabled.

-fps

Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

-rotateidle-min milliseconds
-rotateidle-max milliseconds

The minimum and maximum time each spinner will sit idle, in milliseconds. Defaults: Min 1000, max 6000.

-blinkidle-min milliseconds
-blinkidle-max milliseconds

The minimum and maximum time between blinking effects, in milliseconds. Defaults: Min 1000, max 9000.

-blinkdwell-min milliseconds
-blinkdwell-max milliseconds

The minimum and maximum dwell time for the blinking effects, in milliseconds.  This affects how quickly the blinks actually happen. Defaults: Min 100, max 600.
