NAME

jigsaw - permute the screen image like a jigsaw puzzle  

SYNOPSIS

jigsaw [-display host:display.screen] [-background color] [-delay usecs] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual]  

DESCRIPTION

The jigsaw program takes an image, carves it up into a jigsaw puzzle, shuffles it, and then solves it.

The image that it manipulates will be grabbed from the portion of the screen underlying the window, or from the system's video input, or from a random file on disk, as indicated by the grabDesktopImages, grabVideoFrames, and chooseRandomImages options in the ~/.xscreensaver file; see xscreensaver-demo(1) for more details.

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

-visual visual

-delay microseconds
