Description

The rorschach program draws random patterns reminiscent of the psychological test of same name.

Options

rorschach accepts the following options:

-iterations integer
How many dots should be drawn each time. Default 4000.
-offset integer
How far apart the dots should be. Default 4 pixels.
-xsymmetry
Whether the images should be horizontally symmetrical. Default true.
-ysymmetry
Whether the images should be vertically symmetrical. Default false.
-erase-speed usecs
This controls the speed at which the screen will be erased. (Delay between erasing of individual lines.)
-delay seconds
This sets the number of seconds that the figure will be on the screen.
-fps
Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
