NAME

        hypnowheel - draws overlapping, translucent spiral patterns
 

SYNOPSIS

        hypnowheel  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual visual] [-window]
        [-root] [-delay int] [-layers int]  [-count  int]  [-twistiness  float]
        [-speed float] [-wander] [-symmetric] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        Draws a series of overlapping, translucent spiral patterns.  The tight-
        ness of their spirals fluctuates in and out.
 

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 int
                Delay between frames, in microseconds.  Default 20000.
 
        -layers int
                How many different spirals to draw at once.  Default 4.
 
        -count int
                How many arms each spiral should have.  Default 11.
 
        -twistiness float
                How tightly wound the spirals can  become,  measured  in  rota-
                tions.  Default 4.0 (four times around).
 
        -speed ratio
                Less  than 1 for slower, greater than 1 for faster.  Default 1.
 
        -wander If specified, then the  centers  of  the  spirals  will  wander
                around, rather than them all having the same origin.
 
        -symmetric
                If  specified,  then each pair of left-wrapping and right-wrap-
                ping spirals will be mirror images of each other.
 
        -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.
