NAME

        glknots - generates some twisting 3d knot patterns
 

SYNOPSIS

        glknots   [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
        [-root] [-delay number]  [-speed  float]  [-segments  int]  [-thickness
        float] [-duration seconds] [-no-wander] [-spin XYZ] [-wireframe] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        Generates some twisting 3d knot patterns.  Spins 'em around.
 

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
                Larger numbers mean run faster.  Default: 1.0.
 
        -segments number
                Number  of segments in each path.  Default 800.  Larger numbers
                make the curves smoother, at the expense of  a  higher  polygon
                count.
 
        -thickness float
                How thick the tubes should be.  Default 0.3.
 
        -duration seconds
                How long to leave each knot up.  Default 8 seconds.
 
        -wander | -no-wander
                Whether the cubes should wander around the screen.
 
        -spin [XYZ] | -no-spin
                Which axes, if any, to spin around on.
 
        -wireframe | -no-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.
