DESCRIPTION

        Creates a world of falling blocks that build up and up.
 

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 number
                Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default:  10000  (0.01  sec-
                onds.).
 
        -wireframe | -no-wireframe
                Render in wireframe instead of solid.
 
        -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
 
        -size number
                Size of the base/carpet.
 
        -spawn number
                Likeyhood of a new block being created per frame : 1 high, 1000
                very low.
 
        -camX number
                Initial camera X location in the world.
 
        -camY number
                Initial camera Y location in the world.
 
        -camZ number
                Initial camera Z location in the world.
 
        -rotate | -no-rotate
                Add/Remove rotation to/from the animation.
 
        -no-carpet
                Remove the base/carpet.
 
        -no-nipples
                Remove nipples on the blocks (also applies to udders)  (has  no
                effect in blob mode).
 
        -blob   Run in blob mode, blocks become over sized spheres.
 
        -rotateSpeed number
                Varries speed of world rotation.
 
        -follow Camera follows blocks as they fall instead of camera being semi
                static (stays with top block).
 
        -maxFalling number
                Maximum number of objects created before recycling occurs.
 
        -resolution number
                Resolution of tubes, disks and spheres.
 
        -maxColors number
                Number of different colors available to falling objects.
 
        -dropSpeed number
                Varries speed of falling objects.
 
        -override
                Overrides camera settings and provides a tunnel view.

EXAMPLES

        To  see  which  block  follow-mode is tracking, set the number of block
        colors to 1.
 
        topblock -follow -maxColors 1
 

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.
