       xflame - draws animated flames


       xflame  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]
       [-visual visual] [-foreground  color]  [-hspread  int]  [-vspread  int]
       [-residual  int]  [-variance  int]  [-vartrend int] [-bloom  -no-bloom]
       [-bitmap xbm-file] [-baseline int] [-fps]


       The xflame program draws animated  flames  across  the  bottom  of  the
       screen.   The  flames occasionally flare up.  If a bitmap is specified,
       that image will float above the flames, burning.


       xflame accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

               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

       -foreground color or -fg color
               The color of the flames; default red.  (The background color is
               always black.)

       -bitmap filename
               Specifies  the bitmap file to use (a monochrome XBM file.)  The
               name "none" means not to use a bitmap at all.  If  unspecified,
               a built-in image will be used.

       The  other options are arcane.  If someone would care to document them,
       that would be great.

       -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.
