XScreenSaver(6x)                                              XScreenSaver(6x)



NAME
       boxfit - fills space with a gradient of growing boxes or circles.

SYNOPSIS
       boxfit   [-display   host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root] [-delay usecs] [-count int] [-growby int] [-spacing int] [-bor-
       der int] [-circles | -squares | -random] [-grab] [-peek]

DESCRIPTION
       Packs  the screen with growing boxes or circles, colored according to a
       horizontal or vertical gradient.  The objects grow  until  they  touch,
       then  stop.   When the screen is full, they shrink away and the process
       restarts.

OPTIONS
       -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
               visual.

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -delay microseconds
               How much of a delay should be introduced between steps  of  the
               animation.  Default 20000, or about 0.02 seconds.

       -count int
               How  many  boxes  or circles to animate simultaneously; default
               50.  Smaller numbers yield larger boxes/circles.

       -growby int
               How many  pixels  the  objects  should  grow  by,  each  frame.
               Default 1.

       -spacing int
               How  many  pixels  of space should be left between the objects.
               Default 1.

       -border int
               Thickness of the colored border around each object.  Default 1.

       -circles | -squares | -random
               Draw circles, squares, or choose randomly (the default).

       -grab   Normally it colors the boxes with a horizontal or vertical gra-
               dient.   If  -grab  is specified, it will instead load a random
               image, and color the boxes according  to  the  colors  in  that
               image.   As the picture fills in, some features of the underly-
               ing image may become recognisable.

               When grabbing images, the image will be grabbed from  the  por-
               tion  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,   grabVideoFrames,   and  chooseRandomImages
               options in the ~/.xscreensaver file;  see  xscreensaver-demo(1)
               for more details.

       -peek   This  option  says  to  briefly  show  you the underlying image
               before beginning.  The default is not to show the unadulterated
               image at all.  (This only has an effect when -grab is used.)

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
               to  get  the  name of a resource file that overrides the global
               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
