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.
