       xflip, meltdown - astonish your friends with interesting X effects


       xflip [-planes] [-vert] [-oblic] [-fast | -random] [-times number] [-display displayname]
       meltdown [-planes] [-display displayname] [-delay x] [-wait n | -wait 0]


       This manual page documents briefly the xflip, and meltdown commands.  This manual page was
       written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used  by  others),  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       The programs play with the X display, producing some interesting effects.  One traditional
       use of these commands is to have them run and  affect  someone  else's  X  display,  as  a
       practical joke.


       -display displayname
              The X display to operate on.

              Operate on a singleplane at a time.

       -vert  Flip the screen vertically.

       -oblic Flip the screen vertically and horizontally at the same time.

              Flip small random peices of the screen instead of the while display.

       -times number
              Specifies the number of peices of the screen to flip when -random is used.  Default
              is 300.

       -delay x
              Meltdown may run too fast on fast computers to be fully appreciated;  this  can  be
              used  to  slow  it  down.  If  specified, every x times the display is updated, a 1
              microsecond delay will be inserted. The default is  no  delay  at  all.  Reasonable
              values for x are in the 20 to 200 range.

       -wait n
              Makes  meltdown wait for n seconds after the screen is totally black. If you pass 0
              to -wait, it will wait until you press a key or mouse button.
