DESCRIPTION

This draws one of several three dimensional parametric surfaces.

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.
-delay number
  Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 20000 (0.02 seconds.).
-speed number
  Number of frames before changing shape. Default: 1000.
-surface random (Shortcut: -random-surface)
  Display a random surface. This is the default.
-surface dini (Shortcut: -dini)
  Display Dini’s surface.
-surface enneper (Shortcut: -enneper)
  Display Enneper’s minimal surface.
-surface kuen (Shortcut: -kuen)
  Display the Kuen surface.
-surface moebius (Shortcut: -moebius)
  Display the Moebius strip.
-surface seashell (Shortcut: -seashell)
  Display the seashell surface.
-surface swallowtail (Shortcut: -swallowtail)
  Display the swallowtail catastrophe.
-surface bohemian (Shortcut: -bohemian)
  Display the Bohemian dome.
-surface whitney (Shortcut: -whitney)
  Display the Whitney umbrella.
-surface pluecker (Shortcut: -pluecker)
  Display Pluecker’s conoid.
-surface henneberg (Shortcut: -henneberg)
  Display Henneberg’s minimal surface.
-surface catalan (Shortcut: -catalan)
  Display Catalan’s minimal surface.
-surface corkscrew (Shortcut: -corkscrew)
  Display the corkscrew surface.
-mode random (Shortcut: -random-mode)
  Use random OpenGL primitives to display the surface. This is the default.
-mode points (Shortcut: -points)
  Use OpenGL points to display the surface.
-mode lines (Shortcut: -lines)
  Use OpenGL lines to display the surface.
-mode line-loops (Shortcut: -line-loops)
  Use OpenGL line loops to display the surface.
-wander | -no-wander
  Whether to wander around the screen.
-spin | -no-spin
  Whether to rotate around the center of the figure.
-fps Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

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.
