        hopalong - draw real plane fractals


        hopalong  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color] [-back-
        ground color] [-window] [-root]  [-mono]  [-install]  [-visual  visual]
        [-ncolors  integer]  [-delay  microseconds]  [-cycles  integer] [-count
        integer] [-jong] [-no-jong] [-jong] [-no-sine]


        The hop program generates real  plane  fractals  as  described  in  the
        September 1986 issue of Scientific American.


        hopalong 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
        -ncolors integer
                How  many  colors  should  be used (if possible).  Default 200.
                The colors used cycle through the hue, making  N  stops  around
                the color wheel.
        -cycles integer
                How long to run each batch.  Default 2500 pixels.
        -count integer
                How many pixels should be drawn before a color change.  Default
        -jong integer
        -no-jong integer
                Whether to use the Jong format (default is to choose randomly.)
        -sine integer
        -no-sine integer
                Whether to use the Sine format (default is to choose randomly.)
        -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.
