       rorschach - simulate ink-blot patterns


       rorschach [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono]  [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-iterations  integer]  [-offset  integer]
       [-xsymmetry] [-ysymmetry] [-erase-speed usecs] [-delay secs] [-fps]


       The  rorschach program draws random patterns reminiscent of the psychological test of same


       rorschach 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.

       -iterations integer
               How many dots should be drawn each time.  Default 4000.

       -offset integer
               How far apart the dots should be.  Default 4 pixels.

               Whether the images should be horizontally symmetrical.  Default true.

               Whether the images should be vertically symmetrical.  Default false.

       -erase-speed usecs
               This controls the speed at which the screen will be erased. (Delay between erasing
               of individual lines.)

       -delay seconds
               This sets the number of seconds that the figure will be on the screen.

       -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.


       May call your sanity into question.
