NAME
       photopile - displays multiple images in a periodically shuffled pile

SYNOPSIS
       photopile  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual] [-window]
       [-root] [-count int] [-scale  factor]  [-maxTilt	 degrees]  [-titles  |
       -no-titles]  [-polaroid | -no-polaroid] [-shadows | -no-shadows]	[-font
       font] [-speed ratio] [-duration seconds]	[-fps] [-debug]	[-wireframe]

DESCRIPTION
       Loads several random images, and	displays them as if lying in a	random
       pile.   The  pile is periodically reshuffled, with new images coming in
       and old ones being thrown out.

       This program requires a good video card	capable	 of  supporting	 large
       textures.

       To specify the directory	that images are	loaded from, run xscreensaver-
       demo(1) and click on the	"Advanced" tab.

OPTIONS
       -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.

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

       -root   Draw on the root	window.

       -count int
	       How many	images to display.  Default 7.

       -scale factor
	       Size of images in relation to the size of the window.   Default
	       0.4.

       -maxTilt	degrees
	       Maximum deviation from vertical.	 Default 50 degrees.

       -duration seconds
	       Every duration seconds, one of the images will be replaced with
	       a new one.  Default 5 seconds.

       -speed ratio
	       Speed up	or slow	down the animation.  0.5 means half as fast as
	       the default; 2.0	means twice as fast.

       -delay number
	       Per-frame  delay,  in  microseconds.  Default: 10000 (0.01 sec-
	       onds.).

       -titles | -no-titles
	       Whether to display the file names of the	images	beneath	 them.
	       Default:	no.

       -polaroid | -no-polaroid
	       Whether	to  simulate  images  taken by an instant camera.  De-
	       fault: no.

       -shadows	| -no-shadows
	       Whether to draw images with drop	shadows.  Default: no.

       -font font-name
	       The font	to use for the initial loading screen.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

       -debug  Prints debugging	info to	stderr.

       -wireframe
	       Another debug mode.

ENVIRONMENT
       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.
