fliptext(6)		      XScreenSaver manual		   fliptext(6)

       fliptext - draws pages of text whose lines transparently flip around

       fliptext [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual vis‐
       ual] [-delay microseconds] [-program command] [-size integer  ]	[-col‐
       umns  integer]  [-left  |  -center  |  -right] [-lines integer] [-speed
       float] [-delay usecs] [-font xlfd] [-wireframe] [-fps]

       The fliptext program runs another program to generate a stream of text,
       then  animates the lines of that text transparently flipping in and out
       in 3D.

       fliptext 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

       -program sh-command
	       This program will be run periodically, and its output  will  be
	       the text that is displayed.  Default xscreensaver-text.

	       You  can	 configure the text printed through the "Advanced" tab
	       of xscreensaver-demo(1), or  by	editing	 your  ~/.xscreensaver

       -size integer
	       How  large  a font to use, in points.  (Well, in some arbitrary
	       unit  we're  calling  "points"  for  the	 sake  of   argument.)
	       Default: 20.

       -columns integer
	       At  (approximately)  what  column  to  wrap lines.  Default 80.
	       Wrapping is done by pixels,  not	 characters,  and  lines  will
	       always wrap at the edge of the screen regardless.

       -left | -center | -right
	       Whether to align the text flush left, centered, or flush right.
	       The default is to choose randomly each time  a  new  screen  of
	       text is displayed.

       -lines integer
	       How many lines of text should be shown at once.	Default 8.

       -speed ratio
	       Change  the  animation speed; 0.5 to go half as fast, 2.0 to go
	       twice as fast.

       -delay usecs
	       The delay between frames of the	animation;  default  is	 10000
	       (1/10th second.)

       -font font-name
	       The name of the font to use.  For best effect, this should be a
	       large font (at least 36 points.)	 The bigger the font, the bet‐
	       ter looking the characters will be.  Note that the size of this
	       font affects only the clarity of the characters, not their size
	       on the screen: for that, use the -size or -columns options.

	       Default: -*-utopia-bold-r-normal-*-*-720-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1

       -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

       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.
