       piecewise - lots of moving circles intersecting in interesting ways.


       piecewise  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]  [-root]  [-delay
       number]  [-count  number]  [-ncolors  number]  [-colorspeed  number]  [-minradius  number]
       [-maxradius number] [-no-db] [-fps]


       This  draws  a  bunch  of moving circles which switch from visibility to invisibility when
       they intersect.


       -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.

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -delay number
               Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default: 5000 (0.01 seconds.).

       -count number
               Number of circles.  Default: 32.

       -ncolors number
               Number of colors, only one of which is used at a time.  Default: 256.

       -colorspeed number
               How fast the color changes (0 - 100).  Default: 10.

       -minradius number
               Minimum circle radius (as a proportion of screen height). Default: 0.05.

       -maxradius number
               Maximum circle radius (as a proportion of screen height). Default: 0.2.

       -db | -no-db
               Whether to double buffer.

       -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.
