fuzzyflakes - falling snowflakes/flower shapes


fuzzyflakes [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-win‐ dow] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay usecs] [-speed int] [-arms int] [-thickness int] [-bthickness int] [-radius int] [-layers int] [-density int] [-no-db] (-color string) (-random-colors) [-fps]


The fuzzyflakes program draws falling pastel colored snowflake/flower shapes. Inspired by the credits of the anime "Azumanga Daioh".


fuzzyflakes 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 usecs The delay between steps of the animation, in microseconds. Default: 250000. -speed int How fast, 1-50. Default 10. -arms int How many arms on the flakes; default 5. -thickness int How thick to make the lines; default 10 pixels. -bthickness int How thick to make the borders; default 3 pixels. -radius int Radius of the objects; default 20 pixels. -layers int How many layers of objects; default 3. -density int Default 5. -no-db Disable double-buffering. -color string The base color for the color scheme. Typed as a hexadecimal triplet with or with out the leading #. ie. fa4563 & #43cd12 are both acceptable. If the saturation of you color is too low (<0.03) the random color generator will kick in. The default color is #efbea5 -random-colors This enables the random color generation. It is disabled by default. It over‐ rides anything from -color -fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.


DISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
