SYNOPSIS

binaryring [-fps] [-install] [-noinstall] [-mono] [-root] [-visual visual] [-window] [-window-id window-id] [-color] [-no-color] [-growth-delay delayms] [-particle-number particles] [-ring-radius radius]

DESCRIPTION

A system of path tracing particles evolves continuously from an initial circular creation. Ages of darkness play arbitrarily with ages of light.

Ported (with some extensions) from the code by J. Tarbell at http://complexification.net

OPTIONS

binaryring accepts the following options:
-fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
-install Install a private colormap for the window.
-mono If on a color display, pretend we’re on a monochrome display.
-noinstall Don’t install a private colormap for the window.
-root Draw on the root window.
-visual visual
  Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a visual class or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific visual.
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-window-id window-id
  Specify which window id to use.
-color (Default)
  Particles have random generated colors that gradually change over time.
-no-color Use the original black and white visualization.
-growth-delay delayms (Default: 10000)
  Delay in ms between growth cycles. More delay, slower (but less CPU intensive).
-particles-number particles (Default: 5000)
  The number of particles in the system. With more particles the fps can also be affected.
-ring-radius radius (Default: 40)
  The radius of the ring where the particles are born, in pixels.

ENVIRONMENT

DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.
XENVIRONMENT
  to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
