 NAME
      xsplinefun - display colorful moving splines in the X11 root window

 SYNOPSIS
      xsplinefun [-display d] [-forwards|-backwards] [-maxcolors n] [-loops
      n] [-id]

 DESCRIPTION
      Xsplinefun displays colorful moving splines in the root window.

 OPTIONS
      Xsplinefun accepts all the usual X flags and resources, such as -
      display, -sync, and -xrm.

      Xsplinefun also accepts the following flags:

      -forwards
           Rotates the colormap forwards.  X resource: rotation: f.

      -backwards
           Rotates the colormap backwards.  X resource: rotation: b.

      -maxcolors
           Specifies the maximum number of colormap entries that will be
           used.  If this many are not available, fewer will be used, but if
           more than this many are available they will be left free for
           other applications.  X resource: maxcolors.  Default: 256.

      -loops
           Specifies the desired number of loops per second.  Xsplinefun
           attempts to maintain this speed by adaptively varying the
           duration and freqency of sleeps.  If your X server is not capable
           of the requested speed, it will do the best it can.  X resource:
           loops.  Default: 50.

      -id  Forks a background process and prints the process-id to stdout.
           Useful if you want to make a menu command to kill xsplinefun.  X
           resource: id.  Default: off.
