NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       xrefresh - refresh all or part of an X screen

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       xrefresh [-option...]

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Use  a white background.  The screen just appears to flash
       quickly, and then repaint.  Use  a  black  background  (in
       effect, turning off all of the electron guns to the tube).
       This can be somewhat disorienting as everything goes black
       for  a  moment.   Use  a solid background of the specified
       color.  Try green.  Use the root window background.   This
       is the default.  All of the windows simply repaint.  Specifies
 the portion of  the  screen  to  be  repainted;  see
       X(1X).  This argument allows you to specify the server and
       screen to refresh; see X(1X).

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       xrefresh is a simple X program that causes all or part  of
       your  screen  to  be repainted. This is useful when system
       messages have messed up your screen.  xrefresh maps a window
  on  top  of  the  desired area of the screen and then
       immediately unmaps it, causing refresh events to  be  sent
       to  all  applications.  By default, a window with no background
  is  used,  causing  all  applications  to  repaint
       "smoothly."  However,  the  various options can be used to
       indicate that a solid background (of  any  color)  or  the
       root window background should be used instead.

X DEFAULTS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The xrefresh program uses the routine XGetDefault(3X11) to
       read defaults, so its resource names are all  capitalized.
       Determines  what sort of window background to use.  Determines
 the area to refresh.  Not very useful.

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

       To get default host and display number.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

       It should have just one default type for the background.
