boxfit [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window]
[-root] [-delay usecs] [-count int] [-growby int] [-spacing int] [-bor‐
der int] [-circles | -squares | -random] [-grab] [-peek] [-fps]

Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a
visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root Draw on the root window.
How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the
animation. Default 20000, or about 0.02 seconds.
How many boxes or circles to animate simultaneously; default
50. Smaller numbers yield larger boxes/circles.
How many pixels the objects should grow by, each frame.
How many pixels of space should be left between the objects.
Thickness of the colored border around each object. Default 1.
-circles | -squares | -random
Draw circles, squares, or choose randomly (the default).
-grab Normally it colors the boxes with a horizontal or vertical gra‐
dient. If -grab is specified, it will instead load a random
image, and color the boxes according to the colors in that
image. As the picture fills in, some features of the underly‐
ing image may become recognisable.
When grabbing images, the image will be grabbed from the por‐
tion 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, grabVideoFrames, and chooseRandomImages
options in the ~/.xscreensaver file; see xscreensaver-demo(1)
for more details.
-peek This option says to briefly show you the underlying image
before beginning. The default is not to show the unadulterated
image at all. (This only has an effect when -grab is used.)
-fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
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.
