NAME

       xaos - Fast interactive real-time fractal zoomer/morpher

SYNOPSIS

       xaos [options]

DESCRIPTION

       XaoS  is  a portable real-time interactive fractal zoomer/morpher.  The
       UNIX version works under X11, SVGA and text terminals.   If  you  don’t
       know  what  a fractal is, or you want to know more about XaoS features,
       you should see the animated tutorial.   Run XaoS and press  â€â€™Hâ€â€™  twice.
       It  is  much  more  fun  than  reading the boring manual page :) and it
       supports foreign languages. You might also want to read the   xaos.info
       file  for  some  advanced  stuff  (like  how  to  write  animations and
       tutorials manually, port or extend XaoS, algorithms used etc.)

OPTIONS

       XaoS’ options are divided into the following groups:

        Ugly interface options
              These options  are  common  across  all  installations  of  XaoS
              because  the  only  interface  available  for  now  is  the ugly
              interface.

        Driver selection options
              These options let you choose the graphics driver.

        Driver dependent options
              These options depend on available drivers.

SCREEN SIZE OPTIONS

       XaoS needs exact knowledge of  the  screen  size  to  make  random  dot
       stereograms  and for choosing good viewing areas for fractals. This can
       be done in two ways, by choosing screen  size  or  choosing  the  pixel
       size.    Screen   size   is   best   for   fullscreen   drivers   where
       resolution/pixel-size may be changed. On the other hand, pixel size  is
       best  for windowed environments where some kind of virtual screen, etc.
       could confuse calculation of pixel size from the screen size.

       -screenwidth
              exact width of the screen in centimeters

       -screenheight
              exact height of the screen in centimeters

       -pixelwidth
              exact size of a pixel’s width in centimeters

       -pixelheight
              exact size of a pixel’s height in centimeters

DRIVER SELECTION OPTIONS

       Every XaoS installation has some graphics drivers. Which are  available
       depends  on  which  operating  system you have, available libraries and
       configurations. XaoS by default tries  to  enable  the  best  available
       driver.  So  for example, in the cas of GNU/Linux, it tests the drivers
       in the following order:
       SVGAlib
       X11
       curses
       The following options are used to control this operation:

       -driver
              This option lets  you  specify  the  driver  to  use  and  avoid
              autodetection.

       -list  List available drivers and then exit.

OTHER UI OPTIONS

       The  remaining  options are quite easy to understand and depend on XaoS
       configuration and version, so I do not describe how to use  them  here.
        xaos -help for a complete list of options with descriptions.

BUGS

       There  are  no  known  bugs in this release. See the XaoS home-page at:
