SYNTAX

mentor [-scale factor] [-xdrift x] [-ydrift y]

DESCRIPTION

The bulk of the software in this application was developed as part of the 1992 and 1993 SRC Animation Festivals.

This application is not intended to be used by casual users. The Zeus UI is not documented, and many of the algorithms are buggy. However, for those "in the know", mentor(1) is useful, as it collects all of the Zeus into a single application.

The -scale parameter is used to enlarge or shrink the Zeus control panel. For instance, "-scale .5" would be useful when running mentor with a single display.

The -xdrift and -ydrift parameters offset each view window when it is restored from a snapshot. The default values of xdrift=0 and ydrift=24 are tuned for the SRC default tvtwm. This gross and embarrassing hack will disappear soon. I hope.

The Zeus home page (See the "See Also" below) gives a summary of the animations that are part of the mentor application.
