rorschach accepts the following options:

--window

Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

--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.

Environment

DISPLAY

to get the default host and display number.
