XScreenSaver(6x)                                              XScreenSaver(6x)



NAME
       cynosure - gentle overlapping squares screen saver.

SYNOPSIS
       cynosure  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root] [-delay number] [-ncolors number] [-iterations number]

DESCRIPTION
       A hack similar to `greynetic', but less frenetic. The first implementa-
       tion was by Stephen Linhart; then Ozymandias G. Desiderata wrote a Java
       applet clone. That clone was discovered by Jamie Zawinski,  and  ported
       to C for inclusion here.

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 number
               Per-frame  delay,  in microseconds.  Default: 500000 (0.50 sec-
               onds.).

       -ncolors number
               Number of Colors.  Default: 128.

       -iterations number
               Duration.  2 - 200.  Default: 100.

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.
