DESCRIPTION
       The laser program draws vaguely laser-like moving lines

OPTIONS
       laser accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       -install
               Install a private colormap for the window.

       -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.

       -ncolors integer
               How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 64.  The
               colors used cycle through the hue, making N  stops  around  the
               color wheel.

       -cycles integer
               Default 200.

       -count integer
               Default 10.

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.
