       bsod - Blue Screen of Death emulator

       bsod  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-delay
       seconds] [-fps]

       The bsod program is the finest in personal computer emulation.

       bsod steps through a set of screens, each one a recreation of a differ‐
       ent failure mode of an operating system.	 Systems depicted include Win‐
       dows  3.1,  Windows  95,	 Windows  NT, MS-DOS, AmigaDOS 1.3, Linux, SCO
       UNIX, BSD UNIX, HPUX, Solaris, Tru64, VMS, HVX/GCOS6, IBM OS/390, OS/2,
       MacOS (MacsBug, Bomb, Sad Mac, and OSX), Atari ST, Apple ][+, and NCD X

       bsod accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

	       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

       -delay delay
	       The delay between displaying one crash and another.

       -only which
	       Tell it to run only one mode, e.g., -only HPUX.

       -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.

       Notable	X  resources  supported	 include  the following, which control
       which hacks are displayed and which aren't.  doWindows, doNT,  doWin2K,
       doAmiga,	 doMac,	 doMac1,  doMacsBug,  doMacX,  doSCO,  doAtari, doBSD,
       doLinux, doSparcLinux, doHPPALinux,  doBlitDamage,  doSolaris,  doHPUX,
       doApple2,  doOS390,  doTru64,  doVMS, doMSDOS, doOS2, doHVX, and doATM.
       Each of these is a Boolean resource, they all default to	 true,	except
       for doAtari, doBSD, doSparcLinux, and doHPPALinux, which are turned off
       by default, because they're really not  all  that  interesting  looking
       unless you're a fan of those systems.

       There  are  command-line options for all of these: e.g., -bsd, -no-bsd.
       (Also note the -only option.)

       Unlike the systems being simulated, bsod	 does  not  require  a	reboot
       after running.
