DESCRIPTION

       A little man with a big nose and a hat runs around spewing out messages
       to  the  screen.   This  code (and its bitmaps) were extracted from the
       xnlock program.

OPTIONS

       noseguy 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.

       -font font
               The font used for the messages.

       -program program
               This program will be run periodically, and its output  will  be
               the text of the messages.  Default:

                   xscreensaver-text --cols 40 | head -n15

               You  can  configure the text printed through the "Advanced" tab
               of xscreensaver-demo(1), or  by  editing  your  ~/.xscreensaver
               file.

       -filename file
               If  mode  is  file, then the contents of this file will be used
               for all messages.

       -text string
               If mode is  string,  then  this  text  will  be  used  for  all
               messages.

       XENVIRONMENT
