       rorschach - simulate ink-blot patterns


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


       The rorschach program draws random patterns reminiscent of the  psycho-
       logical test of same name.


       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

       -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

               Whether the images should be vertically  symmetrical.   Default

       -erase-mode integer
               This  sets  the  erase mode. Mode -1 chooses a random mode each
               time. There are currently 6 modes defined (0-5).

       -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


       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.
