[XEROX PARC] A "special effect" that occurs when certain kinds of memory smashes
overwrite the control blocks or image memory of a bit-mapped display. The term
"salt and pepper" may refer to a different pattern of similar origin. Though the
term as coined at PARC refers to the result of an error, some of the X demos
induce plaid-screen effects deliberately as a display hack.
