Synopsis

lockward [--display displayspec] [--root] [--window-id number] [--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.

Options

--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.

--window

Draw on a newly-created window (default).

--root

Draw on the root window.

--window-id number

Draw on the specified window.

--delay microseconds

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.

Environment

DISPLAY

Default host and display number.

XENVIRONMENT

Name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
