NAME

        cynosure - gentle overlapping squares screen saver.
 

SYNOPSIS

        cynosure  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
        [-root] [-delay number] [-ncolors number] [-iterations number] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        A hack similar to `greynetic', but less frenetic. The first implementa-
        tion was by Stephen Linhart; then Ozymandias G. Desiderata wrote a Java
        applet clone. That clone was discovered by Jamie Zawinski,  and  ported
        to C for inclusion here.
 

OPTIONS

        -visual visual
                Specify  which  visual  to use.  Legal values are the name of a

                visual.

                onds.).
 
        -ncolors number
