       Kaleidescope - rotating line segments


       kaleidescope   [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color]  [-background  color]
       [-window]  [-root]  [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-color_mode  mono  |  nice  |  greedy]
       [-nsegments  int]  [-ntrails  int]  [-local_rotation  int]  [-global_rotation int] [-delay
       usecs] [-redmin int] [-greenmin int] [-bluemin  int]  [-redrange  int]  [-greenrange  int]
       [-bluerange int] [-fps]


       The  kaleidescope  program  draws  line  segments in a symmetric pattern that evolves over


       kaleidescope accepts the following options:

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -color_mode mono | nice | greedy
               Specify how kaleidescope uses colors. Mono uses just the  default  foreground  and
               background  colors. Nice uses one color for each segment (specified by nsegments).
               Greedy uses (ntrails * nsegments) + 1  colors.

               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.

       -nsegments integer
               The number of segments to draw. Default is 7.

       -ntrails integer
               The number of trails to draw. Default is 100.

       -local_rotation integer
               The rate at which segments rotate around their center. Default is -59.

       -global_rotation integer
               The rate at which segments rotate around the center of the window.  Default is 1.

       -redmin, -greenmin, -bluemin, -redrange, -greenrange, -bluerange
               All  take  an  integer  argument. When colors are randomly chosen, they are chosen
               from the interval min to min plus range. The minimums default to 30000. The ranges
               default to 20000.

       -delay microseconds
               How  much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation.  Default
               is 20000, or about 5 frames a second.

       -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.
