NAME

        halftone - simple halftone pattern of moving mass points
 

SYNOPSIS

        halftone  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
        [-root] [-count number] [-spacing number] [-sizefactor number]  [-delay
        number]   [-minmass   number]   [-maxmass  number]  [-minspeed  number]
        [-maxspeed number] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        Draws the gravity force in each point on  the  screen  seen  through  a
        halftone  dot  pattern.  The  gravity force is calculated from a set of
        moving mass points. View it from a distance for best effect.
 

OPTIONS

        -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

        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
 
        -root   Draw on the root window.
 
        -count number
                How many mass points to move around. Default: 10
 
        -spacing number
                Distance between each halftone dot. Default: 14
 
        -sizefactor number
                How big each halftone dot should be drawn compared to the spac-
                ing value. Default: 1.5
 
        -minmass number
                The minimum mass of each mass point. Default: 0.001
 
        -maxmass number
                The maximum mass of each mass point. Default: 0.02
 
        -minspeed number
                The minimum speed of each mass point. Default: 0.001
 
        -maxspeed number
                The maximum speed of each mass point. Default: 0.02 -delay num-
                ber Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default: 10000
 
        -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
