        memscroller - scrolls a dump of its own RAM across the screen


        memscroller  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window] [-root] [-mono]
        [-install] [-visual visual] [-font font] [-delay int] [-mono |  -color]
        [-ram | -random | -filename file] [-fps]


        The memscroller program scrolls a dump of its own process memory across
        the screen in three windows at three different rates.


        memscroller accepts the following options:
        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
        -root   Draw on the root window.
                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
        -color  Render each three bytes of memory as R,  G,  B.   This  is  the
        -mono   Render each byte of memory in shades of green.
        -ram    Read from the process's address space.  This is the default.
        -random Instead of reading from memory, generate random numbers.
        -filename file
                Instead  of reading from memory, read from the given file until
                EOF, then re-open it.  If you have permission, /dev/mem  is  an
                interesting  choice here.  (Note that /dev/null won't ever dis-
                play anything, because it returns EOF  without  ever  returning
                any data.)
        -delay microseconds
                How  much  of a delay should be introduced between steps of the
                animation.  Default 10000.
        -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.
