"""News-ticker style scrolling text control

    * Can scroll from right to left or left to right.
    
    * Speed of the ticking is controlled by two parameters:
    
      - Frames per Second(FPS): How many times per second the ticker updates
      
      - Pixels per Frame(PPF): How many pixels the text moves each update

Low FPS with high PPF will result in "jumpy" text, lower PPF with higher FPS
is smoother (but blurrier and more CPU intensive) text.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
