       deco - draw tacky 70s basement wall panelling


       deco  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color]  [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay seconds] [-max-depth int]  [-min-width
       int]  [-min-height  int]  [-line-width yIint] [-smooth-colors] [-golden-ratio] [-mondrian]


       The deco program subdivides and colors rectangles randomly.  It looks kind of like  Brady-
       Bunch-era  rec-room  wall paneling.  (Raven says: "This screensaver is ugly enough to peel
       paint.")  Can also produce more aesthetically pleasing displays via options.


       deco 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 seconds
               How long to wait before starting over.  Default 5 seconds.

       -max-depth integer
               How deep to subdivide.  Default 12.

       -min-width integer

       -min-height integer
               The size of the smallest rectangle to draw.  Default 20x20.

       -line-width integer
               Width of lines drawn between rectangles. Default zero (minimal width).


               Whether  to  use  a  smooth  color palette instead of a random one.  Less jarring.
               Default False.


               Whether to subdivide rectangles using the golden ratio instead of 1/2.  This ratio
               is supposed to be more aesthetically pleasing. Default false.


               Whether  to  imitiate  style of some famous paintings by Piet Mondrian.  Overrides
               line-width and colormap options. Default false.

       -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.
