       boxfit - fills space with a gradient of growing boxes or circles.


       boxfit   [-display   host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root] [-delay  usecs]  [-count  int]  [-growby  int]  [-spacing  int]
       [-border int] [-circles | -squares | -random] [-grab] [-peek] [-fps]


       Packs  the screen with growing boxes or circles, colored according to a
       horizontal or vertical gradient.  The objects grow  until  they  touch,
       then  stop.   When the screen is full, they shrink away and the process


       -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.

       -delay microseconds
               How much of a delay should be introduced between steps  of  the
               animation.  Default 20000, or about 0.02 seconds.

       -count int
               How  many  boxes  or circles to animate simultaneously; default
               50.  Smaller numbers yield larger boxes/circles.

       -growby int
               How many  pixels  the  objects  should  grow  by,  each  frame.
               Default 1.

       -spacing int
               How  many  pixels  of space should be left between the objects.
               Default 1.

       -border int
               Thickness of the colored border around each object.  Default 1.

       -circles | -squares | -random
               Draw circles, squares, or choose randomly (the default).

       -grab   Normally it colors the boxes  with  a  horizontal  or  vertical
               gradient.  If -grab is specified, it will instead load a random
               image, and color the boxes according  to  the  colors  in  that
               image.    As  the  picture  fills  in,  some  features  of  the
               underlying image may become recognisable.

               When grabbing images,  the  image  will  be  grabbed  from  the
               portion  of  the  screen  underlying  the  window,  or from the
               system's video input,  or  from  a  random  file  on  disk,  as
               indicated   by   the  grabDesktopImages,  grabVideoFrames,  and
               chooseRandomImages options in  the  ~/.xscreensaver  file;  see
               xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.

       -peek   This  option  says  to  briefly  show  you the underlying image
               before beginning.  The default is not to show the unadulterated
               image at all.  (This only has an effect when -grab is used.)

       -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.
