xscreensaver(phosphor) + text file

Is there a way to make phosphor read from a text file? In settings says "text program" but I don't know what that is (fortune works but I do not know another one).

Can you point me to some docs regarding this screensaver(what i found was for xscreensaver daemon)?
How can I "tell" phospor that I just want it to put my file.txt on the screen; now it's trying to execute everything in that file.txt, and because there are just ... words it says "command not found".

Just recently I wanted to know how to change the read-out in the Phosphor screensaver as well. I found out how to do it and I posted a page with seven easy steps to follow. The page is located here: phosphor screensaver changes
I hope it helps.
