glsnake is an imitation of Rubiks´ Snake, using OpenGL.
glsnake accepts the following options:
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root Draw on the root window.
Install a private colormap for the window.
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a

-fps Display a running tally of how many frames per second are being
rendered. In conjunction with -delay 0, this can be a useful
benchmark of your GL performance.
Display the snake in wireframe mode, rather than the default
Use the alternate colour scheme for the snake. Shape
identification using colour will be disabled.
Change the speed at which the snake morphs to a new shape.
Change the distance between the nodes of a snake.
Change the time between morphs.
Change the angle of rotation around the Y axis per frame.
Change the angle of rotation around the Z axis per frame.
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.
This XScreenSaver will attempt to read model files installed
with the interactive glsnake.
