NAME

        flyingtoasters - 3d space-age jet-powered flying toasters (and toast)
 

SYNOPSIS

        flyingtoasters  [-display  host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-win-
        dow]  [-root]  [-delay  number]  [-speed  number]  [-ntoasters  number]
        [-nslices number] [-no-texture] [-wireframe] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        Draws a squadron of shiny 3D space-age jet-powered flying toasters, and
        associated toast, flying across your screen.
 

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:  30000  (0.03  sec-
                onds.).
 
        -speed number
                How fast the toasters fly.  Larger for faster.  Default: 1.0.
 
        -ntoasters number
                How many toasters to draw.  Default 20.
 
        -nslices number
                How many slices of toast to draw.  Default 25.
 
        -no-texture
                Turn off texture mapping (for slow machines.)
 
        -wireframe
                Render in wireframe instead of solid.
 
        -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.

        The original After Dark flying toasters, with the fluffy  white  wings,
        were a trademark of Berkeley Systems.  Berkeley Systems ceased to exist
        some time in 1998, having been gobbled up by Sierra  Online,  who  were
        subsequently  gobbled  up by Flipside and/or Vivendi (it's hard to tell
        exactly what happened when.)
 
        I doubt anyone even cares any more, but  if  they  do,  hopefully  this
        homage,  with  the  space-age 3D jet-plane toasters, will be considered
        different enough that whoever still owns the trademark to  the  fluffy-
        winged 2D bitmapped toasters won't get all huffy at us.
