       deco - draw tacky 70s basement wall panelling

       deco  [-display	host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-delay
       seconds]	 [-max-depth  int] [-min-width int] [-min-height int] [-cycle]
       [-no-cycle] [-cycle-delay]

       The deco program subdivides and colors rectangles randomly.   It	 looks
       kind  of	 like  Brady-Bunch-era	rec-room  wall paneling.  (Raven says:
       "this screensaver is ugly enough to peel paint.")

       deco 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 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

       -delay seconds
	       How long to wait before starting over.  Default 5 seconds.

       -max-depth integer
	       How deep to subdivide.  Default 12.  Default 8.

       -min-width integer
	       -min-height integer The size of the smallest rectangle to draw.
	       Default 20x20.


	       Whether to do color cycling.  Default False.

       -cycle-delay usecs
	       If  color  cycling,  how	 often	to change the colors.  Default
	       1000000, or 1 second.

       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.
