CAFire is a small toy that displays a burning trace after the mouse pointer in X. It can work in a normal window or in the root window. A simple background preservation mode enables you to have your favourite background image while running CAFire in the root window. Different effects can be obtained by setting various parameters of the underlying cellular automata, and sample parameter files and colormaps are included.
