NAME
       slip - sucks your screen	into a jet engine

DESCRIPTION
       The slip	program	does lots of blits and chews up	an image.

       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, grabVide-
       oFrames,	 and  chooseRandomImages  options in the ~/.xscreensaver file;
       see xscreensaver-demo(1)	for more details.
