xflame — draws animated flames

Synopsis

xflame [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual] [-foreground color] [-hspread int] [-vspread int] [-residual int] [-variance int] [-vartrend int] [-bloom -no-bloom] [-bitmap xbm-file] [-baseline int] [-fps]

Description

The xflame program draws animated flames across the bottom of the screen. The flames occasionally flare up. If a bitmap is specified, that image will float above the flames, burning.

Options

xflame accepts the following options:

-window
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root
Draw on the root window.
-install
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.
-foreground color or -fg color
The color of the flames; default red. (The background color is always black.)
-bitmap filename
Specifies the bitmap file to use (a monochrome XBM file.) The name "none" means not to use a bitmap at all. If unspecified, a built-in image will be used.

The other options are arcane. If someone would care to document them, that would be great.

-fps
Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

Environment

DISPLAY
to get the default host and display number.
XENVIRONMENT
to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
