       color] [-window] [-root] [-delay seconds] [-maxlines number]  [-fadede‐
       lay useconds] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual]

       The pedal program displays pretty geometric pictures.

       pedal accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -foreground color
	       The color for the foreground.  Default is white.

       -background color
	       The color for the background.  Default is black.

       -delay seconds
	       The number of seconds to pause between each picture.

       -maxlines number
	       The  maximum  number  of lines in the drawing.  Good values are
	       between 20 and 2000.  Maximum value is 16K.

       -fadedelay microseconds
	       The number of micro seconds to take when fading in and out.

       -mono   Don't do fading.	 Pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       To make your X server grunt under load, and to  impress	your  friends,
       try pedal -mono -delay 0 -maxlines 100.

       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.
