       xteevee - Simulate various TV problems

       xteevee  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root] [-install]
       [-visual visual] [-cycle] [-no-cycle]  [-static]  [-no-static]  [-roll]
       [-no-roll] [-bars] [-no-bars]

       xteevee  simulates  various television problems, fondly re-creating the
       days when computers were fun and I spent my  time  with  an  Atari  400
       hooked up to a black-and-white TV I found in someone's trash.

       When  run,  xteevee picks a mode to display from the available options.
       If modes are explicitly set on the  command-line,  they  over-ride  the
       implicit  options  and will be choosen among exclusively.  If modes are
       explicitly excluded from the command-line, the they are simply  removed
       from contention.

       The  image  that it manipulates will be grabbed from the portion of the
       screen underlying the window, or from the system's video input, or from
       a random file on disk, as indicated by the grabDesktopImages, grabVide-
       oFrames, and chooseRandomImages options in  the  ~/.xscreensaver  file;
       see xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.

       See  also  xanalogtv(1)  for  a  more sophisticated (but more graphics-
       intensive) implementation of this concept.

       xteevee accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

               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

       -cycle  Cycle through all the available modes.  This is the default.

               Don't cycle modes.

       -static Explicitly select the "static" mode.

               Explicitly forbid the "static" mode.

       -roll   Explicitly select the "vertical roll" mode.

               Explicitly forbid the "vertical roll" mode.

       -bars   Explicitly select the "color bars" mode.

               Explicitly forbid the "color bars" mode.

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

       Notable X resources supported include the following:

       static,  roll  and  bars  are  booleans, defining which modes are to be
       implicitly available if xteevee is run without command-line mode selec-
       tions.   cycle  is  a boolean, defining if xteevee should cycle through
       each available mode or pick one  and  stick  with  it.   delayMode  and
       delayBetween  are  integers, defining how long each mode should be dis-
       played and how long the time between them should be  if  cycle  is  on.
       staticSignal  is an integer, defining the strength of the signal during
       the "static" mode, as a percentage.

       xteevee should simulate more TV problems.
