Animate - the AfterStep Animate module
Animate is spawned by afterstep, so no command line invocation will work.
From within the .steprc file, Animate is spawned as follows:
or from within an afterstep pop-up menu:
Module "Wharf" Wharf
Module "NoClutter" Clean
Module "Identify" Ident
Module "Banner" Banner
Module "Debug" Debug
Module "SaveDesktop" Save
Module "Pager" Pager 0 3
Module "Animate" Animate
The Animate module animates window actions. It currently animates
iconification and deiconification in a zoom style or a twisty spinning style.
During initialization, Animate will eventually search a
configuration file which describes the time-outs and actions to take.
The configuration file is the same file that afterstep used during
The invocation method was shown in the synopsis section
Animate reads the same .steprc file as fvwm reads when it starts up,
and looks for certain configuration options:
Tells Animate what color to draw with.
Tells Animate how many milliseconds to sleep between frames of animation.
Tells Animate how many steps to break the animation into.
Tells Animate how many revolutions to twist the iconification frame.
Tells Animate how wide a line to draw with. Note that with 0 is a fast line
at Width 1
Tells Animate what method to use to draw resizes. zoom and twist
are currently supported.
