NAME

lockward - Rotating spinning color-cycling things  

SYNOPSIS

lockward [-display displayspec] [-root] [-window] [-visual arg] [-window-id arg] [-delay usec] [-pair] [-fps | -no-fps] [-blink | -no-blink] [-rotateidle-min msec] [-rotateidle-max msec] [-blinkidle-min msec] [-blinkidle-max msec] [-blinkdwell-min msec] [-blinkdwell-max msec]  

DESCRIPTION

lockward draws a spinning, rotating set of notched wheels overlaid with some flashing effects, using OpenGL. It's a sort of cross between the wards in a combination lock and those old information displays that animated via polarized light.
