SYNOPSIS

xstarroll [parameter1] [parameter2] ...

DESCRIPTION

XStarRoll is a simple demonstration program for X11. Letters and pixmaps fly to far, far, far away. You can fly optional letters and pixmaps, and use XStarRoll as a background picture.

If a parameter is a pixmap filename, XStarRoll reads it and flies the pixmap, or, if the parameter is a text filename, XStarRoll reads it and flies letters in it, or else, xstarroll flies the parameter as it is.

You can send letters to XStarRoll through the standard input.
