DESCRIPTION
       A little man with a big nose and a hat runs around spewing out messages

       xnlock program.

               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.

       -font font

               of xscreensaver-demo(1), or  by  editing  your  ~/.xscreensaver
               file.

       -filename file
               If  mode  is  file, then the contents of this file will be used
               for all messages.
