Blast(1) blast holes in X windows!




What is Blast?

Blast is simple program that lets you blast holes any window in X using mouse button 1. Mouse button 2 repairs blasted windows and mouse button 3 exits the program. Holes become permanent unless you repair them before you quit. You may move permanently "damaged" windows and enjoy the view behind the holes.

Technical Details

Blast uses the X Window Shape Extension library. If you are building this on a Sun 4, you may also enable the shooting sound effect.

You may have the program repair all holes by default when you quit by setting REPAIR_EVERYTHING_IN_SIGHT.

The program is not overly sophisticated. It was written as an exercise in using X Shape Extension. Hopefully, it will educational for others as well.
