DescriptionThe memscroller program scrolls a dump of its own process memory across the screen in three windows at three different rates.
Optionsmemscroller accepts the following options:
- Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
- Draw on the root window.
- Install a private colormap for the window.
- -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.
- Render each three bytes of memory as R, G, B. This is the default.
- Render each byte of memory in shades of green.
- Read from the process's address space. This is the default.
- Instead of reading from memory, generate random numbers.
- -filename file
- Instead of reading from memory, read from the given file until EOF, then re-open it. If you have permission, /dev/mem is an interesting choice here. (Note that /dev/null won't ever display anything, because it returns EOF without ever returning any data.)
- -delay microseconds
- How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation. Default 10000.
- Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
- 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.
