       deco - draw tacky 70s basement wall panelling


       deco  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-delay
       seconds]  [-max-depth  int] [-min-width int] [-min-height int] [-cycle]
       [-no-cycle] [-cycle-delay]


       The deco program subdivides and colors rectangles randomly.   It  looks
       kind  of  like  Brady-Bunch-era  rec-room  wall paneling.  (Raven says:
       "this screensaver is ugly enough to peel paint.")


       deco accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we’re on a monochrome display.

               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

       -delay seconds
               How long to wait before starting over.  Default 5 seconds.

       -max-depth integer
               How deep to subdivide.  Default 12.  Default 8.

       -min-width integer
               -min-height integer The size of the smallest rectangle to draw.
               Default 20x20.


               Whether to do color cycling.  Default False.

       -cycle-delay usecs
               If  color  cycling,  how  often  to change the colors.  Default
               1000000, or 1 second.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
