DESCRIPTION

        The braid program draws random color-cycling braids around a circle.
 

OPTIONS

        braid 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
                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.
 
        -ncolors integer
                How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 64.  The
                colors used cycle through the hue, making N  stops  around  the
                color wheel.
 
        -cycles integer
 
        -count integer
 
        -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
