       flag - draws a waving flag, containing text or an image

       flag  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual]  [-ncolors
       integer] [-delay microseconds] [-cycles integer] [-size integer] [-text
       string] [-font font] [-bitmap xbm-file]


       The flag program draws a waving flag that contains text or a bitmap.

       flag 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

       -ncolors integer
	       How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 200.

       -cycles integer

       -count integer

       -size integer
	       How large the pixels in the flag should be, from 1  to  8.   If
	       this  is	 a  negative number, the pixel size is chosen randomly
	       from the range 1 to -size.  Default -7.

       -text text
	       The text to display in the flag.	 Multiple lines	 of  text  are
	       allowed; the lines will be displayed centered atop one another.
	       Default: none.  If the text is the  magic  string  "(default)",
	       then  the  text used will be the local machine name; a newline;
	       and the local OS version.

       -bitmap xbm-file
	       The bitmap to display in the flag; this must  be	 an  XBM  file
	       (color XPMs are not allowed.)  Default: none.  If the bitmap is
	       the magic string "(default)", then the bitmap used  will	 be  a
	       charming little picture of J. R. "Bob" Dobbs.

	       If  neither  -text  nor	-bitmap are specified, then either the
	       builtin text or the builtin bitmap will be chosen randomly.

       -font font
	       The font in which to draw the text;  the	 default  is  "-*-hel‐

       -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.
