       The  fuzzyflakes  program draws falling pastel colored snowflake/flower
       shapes.  Inspired by the credits of the anime "Azumanga Daioh".


       fuzzyflakes 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 usecs
               The delay between steps  of  the  animation,  in  microseconds.
               Default: 250000.

       -speed int
               How fast, 1-50.  Default 10.

       -arms int
               How many arms on the flakes; default 5.

       -thickness int
               How thick to make the lines; default 10 pixels.

       -bthickness int
               How thick to make the borders; default 3 pixels.

       -radius int
               Radius of the objects; default 20 pixels.

       -layers int
               How many layers of objects; default 3.

       -density int
               Default 5.

       -no-db  Disable double-buffering.

       -color string
               The  base  color  for the color scheme.  Typed as a hexadecimal
               triplet with or with out the leading #. ie.  fa4563  &  #43cd12
               are both acceptable.  If the saturation of you color is too low
               (<0.03) the random color generator will kick in.   The  default
               color is #efbea5

               This  enables  the  random color generation.  It is disabled by
               default.  It overrides anything from -color

       -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.
