I am looking for a free application for webcam that have a very good ,easy and flexible command line options. because I want to shutting down my X in a machine and use my web cam as a motion detector to detect a motion or some thing else and take picture and save them in an appropriate place or any other action that possible but in command line configuration or file configuration and does not need any graphical user interface.
Does any body know anything for it.

Thanks a lot for any help,
