       decayscreen - make a screen meltdown.


       decayscreen  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window] [-root] [-mono]
       [-install] [-visual visual]  [-delay  usecs]  [-duration  secs]  [-mode
       mode] [-fps]


       The  decayscreen  program creates a melting effect by randomly shifting
       rectangles around the screen.

       The image that it manipulates 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.


       decayscreen 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 microseconds
               Slow it down.

       -duration seconds
               How long to run  before  loading  a  new  image.   Default  120

       -mode mode
               The  direction  in which the image should tend to slide.  Legal
               values are random (meaning pick one), up,  left,  right,  down,
               upleft,  downleft,  upright, downright, shuffle (meaning prefer
               no particular direction), in (meaning move  things  toward  the
               center),  out  (meaning move things away from the center), melt
               (meaning melt straight downward),  stretch (meaning stretch the
               screen  downward),  and  fuzz  (meaning  go  blurry  instead of

       -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.
