        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] [-line-
        width yIint] [-smooth-colors] [-golden-ratio] [-mondrian] [-fps]


        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.")   Can  also  produce
        more aesthetically pleasing displays via options.


        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.
        -min-width integer
        -min-height integer
                The size of the smallest rectangle to draw.  Default 20x20.
        -line-width integer
                Width  of lines drawn between rectangles. Default zero (minimal
                Whether to use a smooth color palette instead of a random  one.
                Less jarring. Default False.
                Whether  to subdivide rectangles using the golden ratio instead
                of 1/2.  This ratio is supposed to be more aesthetically pleas-
                ing. Default false.
                Whether to imitiate style of some famous paintings by Piet Mon-
                drian.  Overrides  line-width  and  colormap  options.  Default
        -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

                resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
