       The pedal program displays pretty geometric pictures.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -foreground color
               The color for the foreground.  Default is white.

       -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.
