bsetroot -gradient texture -from color -to color

Does anyone know where I can find the options for texture in bsetroot for flux/blackbox? The bsetroot man says they're in the blackbox man but I couldn't find them and search for gradient came up empty.

That's what I'm asking about. Options for the gradient switch.

This is from the bsetroot man:

-gradient texturestring
Renders the specified texture string to the root
window. For possible texture strings, please refer
to blackbox(1). You must also specify both a -from
and a -to color.

I refered to blackbox(1) I searched for gradient and came up with nothing. I also searched for texture and only found it once, and it had nothing to do with bsetroot.

I know the option works. For example:

rootCommand: bsetroot -gradient interlacedgradient -from green -to black

will set the background to an interlaced gradient from green in the upper left to black in the lower right. I would like to know what options are available other than interlacedgradient.

I had the same trouble not long ago....there's nothing in blackbox manpage to help. Eventually I decided to look at the styles included with the window manager and found what I was looking for there. For example:
rootCommand: bsetroot -gradient flatcrossdiagonalgradient -from rgb:4/6/8 -to rgb:3/48/6
