SYNOPSIS

geodesic [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-mode mode] [-no-wander] [-no-spin] [-fps] [-delay number] [-speed number] [-count number]

DESCRIPTION

Animates a mesh geodesic sphere of increasing and decreasing complexity. A geodesic sphere is an icosohedron whose equilateral faces are sub-divided into non-equilateral triangles to more closely approximate a sphere.

The animation shows the equilateral triangles subdivided into four coplanar equilateral triangles; and then inflated outward, causing the sub-triangles to no longer be equilateral, but to more closely approximate the surface of a sphere.

OPTIONS

-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.
-root Draw on the root window.
-mode mesh | solid | stellated | stellated2 | wire
  Face/edge display style. Default mesh.
-wander | -no-wander
  Whether the object should wander around the screen.
-spin | -no-spin
  Whether the object should spin.
-fps | -no-fps
  Whether to show a frames-per-second display at the bottom of the screen.
-delay number
  Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 30000 (0.03 seconds).
-speed number
  Animation speed. 2.0 means twice as fast, 0.5 means half as fast.
-count number
  Depth (frequency) of the geodesic sphere. Default: 4.

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.
