       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-ncolors integer] [-delay microseconds]



       The strange program draws strange attractors


       strange accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

               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.

       -ncolors integer
               How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 100.  The colors are chosen

       -points integer
               Change the number of points/iterations each frame.  Default 5500.  More than  6000
               activates  the  accumulator,  which  makes  parts  of the image brighter or darker
               depending on how often the attractor hits each pixel.

       -point-size integer
               Changes the size of individual points.  Default 1.

       -zoom float
               Zooms in or out.  Default 0.9.

       -brightness float
               Adjusts the brightness for accumulator mode.  Default 1.0.

       -motion-blur float
               Adds motion blur.  Default 3.0, no motion blur is 1.0.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources  stored  in
               the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
