        pedal - pretty geometric picture program


        pedal  [-display  host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
        color] [-window] [-root] [-delay seconds]  [-maxlines  number]  [-mono]
        [-install] [-visual visual] [-fps]


        The pedal program displays pretty geometric pictures.


        pedal accepts the following options:
        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
        -root   Draw on the root window.
        -foreground color
                The color for the foreground.  Default is white.
        -background color
                The color for the background.  Default is black.
        -delay seconds
                The number of seconds to pause between each picture.
        -maxlines number
                The  maximum  number  of lines in the drawing.  Good values are
                between 20 and 2000.  Maximum value is 16K.
        To make your X server grunt under load, and to  impress  your  friends,
        try pedal -mono -delay 0 -maxlines 100.
        -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.
