NAME

       slip - sucks your screen into a jet engine

SYNOPSIS

       slip  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color]  [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  integer]  [-iterations  integer]
       [-points integer] [-delay microseconds] [-delay2 microseconds] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION

       The slip program does lots of blits and chews up an image.

       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.

OPTIONS

       slip 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
               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 visual.

       -ncolors integer
               How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 200.  The colors used cycle
               through the hue, making N stops around the color wheel.

       -count integer
               How many whooziwhatsis to generate.  Default 35.

       -cycles integer
               How long to frobnicate.  Default 50.

       -delay microseconds
               How long we should wait between drawing each step.  Default 50000, or about 1/20th
               second.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
