DESCRIPTION

        The  spotlight  program takes an image and exposes small sections of it
        as if through a wandering spotlight beam.
 
        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;
