draws animated flames

Synopsis

xflame [--display host:display.screen] [--window] [--root] [--window-id number][--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.

--window-id number

Draw on the specified 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.

XSCREENSAVER_WINDOW

The window ID to use with --root.
