        cwaves - languid sinusoidal colors


        cwaves  [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
        color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-delay
        usecs] [-waves int] [-colors int] [-fps]


        The  cwaves program draws a languidly-scrolling vertical field of sinu-
        soidal colors.


        cwaves 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 microseconds
                How much of a delay should be introduced between steps  of  the
                animation.  Default 20000, or about 1/50th second.
        -waves int
                How  many  cosines  to  add together.  The more waves, the more
                complex the apparent motion.
        -colors int
                How many colors to use.  Default 800.   The  more  colors,  the
                smoother the blending will be.
        -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.


        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.
