NAME

        slidescreen - permute the screen image like an 8-puzzle
 

SYNOPSIS

        slidescreen  [-display host:display.screen] [-background color] [-grid-
        size pixels] [-ibw pixels] [-increment pixels] [-delay usecs]  [-delay2
        usecs] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual]
 

DESCRIPTION

        The slidescreen program takes an image, divides it into a grid, deletes
        a random square of that grid, and  then  randomly  slides  one  of  the
        neighbors of this "hole" into the hole (and repeat.)
 
        The  image  that it manipulates will be grabbed from the portion of the
        screen underlying the window, or from the system’s video input, or from
        a random file on disk, as indicated by the grabDesktopImages, grabVide‐
        oFrames, and chooseRandomImages options in  the  ~/.xscreensaver  file;

OPTIONS

        slidescreen accepts the following options:
 
        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
 
        -root   Draw on the root window.
 
        -install
                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.
 
        -grid-size pixels
                The size of the grid cells.  Default 70 pixels.
 
        -ibw pixels
                The  size of the "gutter" between grid cells.  Default 4 pixel.
 
        -increment pixels
                How many pixels by which a piece should be moved  when  sliding
                to a new location.  Default 10 pixels.
 
        -delay microseconds
                How  much  of a delay should be introduced between steps of the
                animation of the motion of each segment.  Default 50000,  which
                is  0.05  seconds.   This  is closely related to the -increment
                parameter.
 
        -delay2 microseconds
                How much of a delay should be introduced between the end of the
                motion  of  one  segment  and  the  beginning  of the motion of
                another.  Default 1000000, which is one second.
 

ENVIRONMENT

        DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.
 
        XENVIRONMENT
                to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
                resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
