        squiral - square spirals screensaver


        squiral [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
        color]  [-window]  [-root]  [-mono]  [-install]  [-noinstall]  [-visual
        visual]  [-fill percent] [-count number] [-delay usec] [-disorder frac-
        tion] [-handedness fraction] [-cycle] [-fps]


        The squiral program displays interacting, spiral-producing automata


        squiral 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
        -fill percent
                Specify the percent (0-100) of the screen which must be  filled
                before the screen is cleared.  60-80 percent are good values.
        -count number
                The number of squiralies.  By default, the screen width divided
                by 32.
        -delay usec
                The wait between steps.  The default is 1000.
        -disorder fraction
                The fraction of the time a squiraly will choose  a  new  direc-
                tion.  The default is 0.005.
        -handedness fraction
                The  fraction of the time a squiraly will choose to enter left-
                handed mode.  0.0 means exclusively right-handed behavior,  0.5
                (the  default)  is a balance between the two, and 1.0 is exclu-
                sively left-handed behaviour.
        -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.
