NAME

        hypercube - 2d projection of a 4d object
 

SYNOPSIS

        hypercube  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-back-
        ground color] [-color[0-7] color] [-xy float] [-xz float]  [-yz  float]
        [-xw  float]  [-yw  float] [-zw float] [-observer-z int] [-delay usecs]
        [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        The hypercube program displays a wireframe projection  of  a  hypercube
        which is rotating at user-specified rates around any or all of its four
        axes.
 

OPTIONS

        hypercube 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
                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.
 
        -delay microseconds
                How much of a delay should be introduced between steps  of  the
                animation.  Default 100000, or about 1/10th second.
 
        -observer-z int
                How  far  away the observer is from the center of the cube (the
                cube is one unit per side.)  Default 5.
 
        -color0 color
 
        -color1 color
 
        -color2 color
 
        -color3 color
 
        -color4 color
 
        -color5 color
 
        -color6 color
 
        -color7 color
                The colors used to draw the line segments bordering  the  eight
                faces  of  the  cube.  Some of the faces have only two of their
                border-lines drawn in the specified color, and  some  have  all
                four.
 
        -xw float
 
        -xy float
 
        -xz float
 
        -yw float
 
        -yz float
 
        -zw float
                The amount that the cube should be rotated around the specified
                axis at  each  frame  of  the  animation,  expressed  in  0.001
                radians.   These  should  be  small floating-point values (less
                than 50 works best.)  Default: xy=3, xz=5, yw=10.
 
        -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
 

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.
