NAME

       xflip, meltdown - astonish your friends with interesting X effects

SYNOPSIS

       xflip  [-planes]  [-vert]  [-oblic]  [-fast  | -random] [-times number]
       [-display displayname]
       meltdown [-planes] [-display displayname] [-delay x] [-wait n  |  -wait
       0]

DESCRIPTION

       This  manual  page  documents briefly the xflip, and meltdown commands.
       This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but
       may  be  used  by others), because the original program does not have a
       manual page.

       The programs play  with  the  X  display,  producing  some  interesting
       effects.  One traditional use of these commands is to have them run and
       affect someone else's X display, as a practical joke.

OPTIONS

       -display displayname
              The X display to operate on.

       -planes
              Operate on a singleplane at a time.

       -vert  Flip the screen vertically.

       -oblic Flip the screen vertically and horizontally at the same time.

       -random
              Flip small random peices of the  screen  instead  of  the  while
              display.

       -times number
              Specifies  the  number  of  peices  of  the  screen to flip when
              -random is used.  Default is 300.

       -delay x
              Meltdown may  run  too  fast  on  fast  computers  to  be  fully
              appreciated;  this  can  be  used to slow it down. If specified,
              every x times the display is updated, a 1 microsecond delay will
              be  inserted.  The default is no delay at all. Reasonable values
              for x are in the 20 to 200 range.

       -wait n
              Makes meltdown wait for n seconds after the  screen  is  totally
              black.  If  you  pass 0 to -wait, it will wait until you press a
              key or mouse button.
