DESCRIPTION The cwaves program draws a languidly-scrolling vertical field of sinusoidal colors.
OPTIONS cwaves 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 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 visual. -delay microseconds How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation. Default 20000, or about 1/50th second. -waves int How many cosines to add together. The more waves, the more complex the apparent motion. -colors int How many colors to use. Default 800. The more colors, the smoother the blending will be. -fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
