       cwaves - languid sinusoidal colors


       cwaves  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay  usecs]  [-waves  int]  [-colors  int]


       The cwaves program draws a languidly-scrolling vertical field of sinusoidal colors.


       cwaves 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 visual.

       -delay microseconds
               How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation.   Default
               20000, or about 1/50th second.

       -waves int
               How  many  cosines to add together.  The more waves, the more complex the apparent

       -colors int
               How many colors to use.  Default 800.  The more colors, the smoother the  blending
               will be.

       -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.
