       Loads several random images, and displays them  flying  in  a  circular
       formation.   The  circle changes speed and direction randomly, tilts on
       its axis, and the images move in and out.

       This program requires a good video card  capable  of  supporting  large

       To specify the directory that images are loaded from, run xscreensaver-
       demo(1) and click on the "Advanced" tab.

       -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

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -count int
               How many images to display.  Default 7.

       -zoom | -no-zoom
               Whether the images should move in and out (toward and away from
               the axis of rotation).  Default true.

       -tilt XY | -no-tilt
               Whether  the  axis  of  rotation should tilt, and how.  -tilt X
               means that it will tilt toward and away from the viewer.  -tilt
               Y  means that it will tilt to the left and right of the screen.
               -tilt XY (the default) means it will do both.

       -titles | -no-titles
               Whether to display the file names of the images  beneath  them.
               Default: yes.

       -font font-name

       -speed ratio
               Speed up or slow down the animation.  0.5 means half as fast as
               the default; 2.0 means twice as fast.

               the screen.

       -debug  Prints debugging info to stderr.

               Another debug mode.

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.
