 NAME
      xroach - cockroaches hide under your windows

 SYNOPSIS
      xroach [-option .,..]

 DESCRIPTION
      Xroach displays disgusting cockroaches on your root window. These
      creapy crawlies scamper around until they find a window to hide under.
      Whenever you move or iconify a window, the exposed orthopteras again
      scamper for cover.

 OPTIONS
      -display display_name
              Drop the roaches on the given display. Make sure the display
              is nearby, so you can hear the screams.

      -rc roach_color
              Use the given string as the color for the bugs instead of the
              default "black".

      -speed roach_speed
              Use the given speed for the insects instead of the default
              20.0. For example, in winter the speed should be set to 5.0.
              In summer, 30.0 might be about right.

      -roaches num_roaches
              This is the number of the little critters. Default is 10.

      -squish Enables roach squishing.  Point and shoot with any mouse
              button.

      -rgc roach_gut_color
              Sets color of the guts that spill out of squished roaches.  We
              recommend yellowgreen.

 BUGS
      As given by the -roaches option. Default is 10.
