Draws a stick-man juggling various collections of objects.
juggle accepts the following options:
X11 display to use. Overrides DISPLAY environment variable.
-root Draw on the root window.
-window Draw on a newly-created X window. This is the default.
-mono Draw in monochrome.
-install | -noinstall
Turn on/off installing colormap.
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a
visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
Draw on an already existing X window.
-pattern " pattern "
Specify juggling pattern in annotated site-swap notation. In
site-swap notation, the "height" of each throw is given. E.g.,
"3" is the height needed to juggle a 3-Cascade. Note that
these sequences need to be chosen carefully, to avoid colli-
Annotations indicate relative hand movements or tricks:
- Inside throw (default)
+ Outside throw
= Cross Throw
& Cross Catch
x Cross Throw and Catch
-pattern "[ pattern ]"
Specify juggling pattern in annotated Adam notation. Adam
notation is a little harder to visualize. Each integer n rep-
resents a cyclic permutation of (0...n). The equivalent site-
swap value is determined by calculating how many of the permu-
tations it takes to get back to the identity. The largest num-
ber used is the same as the number of objects in the pattern.
The advantage of Adam notation is that these sequences do not
need to be chosen carefully, since all possible sequences are
juggle-able. Annotations are the same as in site-swap nota-
For example, both of these describe a 3-Shower:
-pattern "+5 1"
-pattern "[+3 1]"

Minimum Trail Length. 0 - 100. Default: 1. Objects may over-
ride this, for example flaming torches always leave a trail.
Turn on/off real-time juggling. Deprecated. There should be
no need to turn off real-time juggling, even on slow systems.
Adjust speed using -count above.
Turn on/off pattern descriptions.
Turn on/off Balls.
Turn on/off Clubs.
Turn on/off Flaming Torches.
Turn on/off Knives.
Turn on/off Rings.
Turn on/off Bowling Balls.
Speed. 50 - 1000. Default: 200. This determines the expected
time interval between a throw and the next catch, in millisec-
Performance Length. 50 - 1000. Default: 1000. Setting this
smaller will force the juggler to switch patterns (and objects)
Additional delay between frames, in microseconds. Default:
10000. Deprecated. Adjust speed using -count.
Maximum number of colors to use. Default: 32.
-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.
