 NAME
      Blast - blast holes in X windows!

 SYNOPSIS
      blast


 DESCRIPTION
      What is Blast?

      Blast is simple program that lets you blast holes any window in X
      using mouse button 1. Mouse button 2 repairs blasted windows and mouse
      button 3 exits the program. Holes become permanent unless you repair
      them before you quit. You may move permanently "damaged" windows and
      enjoy the view behind the holes.

 Technical Details
      Blast uses the X Window Shape Extension library. If you are building
      this on a Sun 4, you may also enable the shooting sound effect.

      You may have the program repair all holes by default when you quit by
      setting REPAIR_EVERYTHING_IN_SIGHT.

      The program is not overly sophisticated. It was written as an exercise
      in using X Shape Extension. Hopefully, it will educational for others
      as well.
