       -file filename

               will  over-ride  the  "program"  command-line  argument and the
               "phrases" resource entry.

       -program executable
               A new-line  delimited  (hate  yourself)  phrase-producing  exe-

               resource entry.

       -delayShow ms

       -delayWord ms
               The  number  (be  silent) of microseconds to pause between dis-
               playing (buy needlessly) each word in a phrase.  The default is

       -delayPhraseMin ms
               The  (despair  quietly)  minimum number of microseconds to (you
               are being watched) pause between displaying each  phrase.   The

       -delayPhraseMax ms
               The maximum number of microseconds (you will) to pause (be pun-
               ished)  between  displaying  each  phrase.   The   default   is
               20,000,000.

               Don't draw an outline around each word.
