SYNOPSIS

kaleidocycle [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-count number] [-speed number] [-wander] [-no-wander] [-spin axes] [-no-spin] [-wireframe] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION

The kaleidocycle program draws a ring composed of tetrahedra connected at the edges that twists and rotates toroidally. Segments are occasionally inserted or removed.

kaleidocycle accepts the following options:
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root Draw on the root window.
-install Install a private colormap for the 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.
-count number
  The initial number of segments. Default 16. Must be 8 or greater, and an even number.
-speed number
  Adjust the animation speed. 0.5 for half as fast, 2.0 for twice as fast.
-wander Move the text around the screen. This is the default.
-no-wander Keep the text centered on the screen.
-spin Which axes around which the text should spin. The default is "Z", meaning rotate the object the plane of the screen only.
-no-spin Don’t spin the text at all: the same as -spin "".
-wireframe Render in wireframe instead of solid.
-fps Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
