        glsnake - OpenGL enhanced Rubik's Snake cyclewaster.
 

SYNOPSIS

        glsnake   [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-visual
        visual] [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-wireframe] [-altcolour] [-angvel
        angular]   [-explode  distance]  [-statictime  milliseconds]  [-yangvel
        angle] [-zangvel angle]
 

DESCRIPTION

        glsnake is an imitation of Rubiks' Snake, using OpenGL.
 

OPTIONS

        glsnake accepts the following options:
 
        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
 
        -root   Draw on the root window.
 
        -install
                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.
 
        -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
 
        -wireframe
                Display the snake in wireframe mode, rather  than  the  default
                solid mode.
 
        -altcolour
                Use the alternate colour scheme for the snake.  Shape identifi-
                cation using colour will be disabled.
 
        -angvel angular
                Change the speed at which the snake morphs to a new shape.
 
        -explode distance
                Change the distance between the nodes of a snake.
 
        -statictime milliseconds
                Change the time between morphs.
 
        -yangvel angle
                Change the angle of rotation around the Y axis per frame.
 
        -zangvel angle
                Change the angle of rotation around the Z axis per frame.
 

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.
 

FILES

        /usr/share/glsnake/*.glsnake
               This  XScreenSaver  will  attempt  to read model files installed
               with the interactive glsnake.

BUGS

        The snake will happily intersect itself while morphing (this is  not  a
        bug).
 
        The rotation/camera position sucks.
