slip - sucks your screen into a jet engine
slip [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-ncolors integer] [-iterations integer] [-points integer] [-delay microseconds] [-delay2 microseconds]
The slip program does lots of blits and chews up an image. 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; xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.
slip 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 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. -ncolors integer How many colors should be used (if possible). Default 200. The colors used cycle through the hue, making N stops around the color wheel. -count integer How many whooziwhatsis to generate. Default 35. -cycles integer How long to frobnicate. Default 50. -delay microseconds How long we should wait between drawing each step. Default 50000, or about 1/20th second.
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. xscreensaver-getimage(1)
