       imsmap - generate fractal maps


       imsmap  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  int]  [-delay  seconds]  [-delay2
       microseconds] [-iterations int] [-mode h|s|v|random] [-fps]


       The  imsmap  program  generates  map  or cloud-like patterns.  It looks quite different in
       monochrome and color.


       imsmap 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.

       -ncolors integer
               How many colors to use.  Default 50.

       -delay integer
               How long to delay between images.  Default 10 seconds.

       -delay2 integer
               How long to delay between bitmaps.  Default 200000 (0.2 seconds).

       -iterations integer
               A measure of the resolution of the resultant image, from 0 to 7.  Default 7.

       -mode [ hue | saturation | value | random ]
               The  axis  upon  which  colors  should  be interpolated between the foreground and
               background color.  Default random.

       -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.
