        xspirograph - simulates the rotation of a disk inside a circular rim
 

SYNOPSIS

        xspirograph [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-install]
        [-visual visual] [-delay seconds] [-subdelay useconds]  [-layers  inte-
        ger] [-alwaysfinish] [-noalwaysfinish] [-fps]
 

DESCRIPTION

        xspirograph draws patterns such as those made by a spirograph, that is,
        the curve traced by a point on a circular disk rotating on  the  inside
        of a hollow circular rim.
 

OPTIONS

        xspirograph accepts the following options:
 
        -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.
 
        -root   Draw on the root window.
 
        -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 secs
                The  delay  between  finishing  one draw and starting the next.
                Default: 5 seconds.
 
        -subdelay usec
                The time to delay between each hundred line draws.  Use this if
                you want to see the pattern form.  Default: 0.
 
        -alwaysfinish -noalwaysfinish
                If  you want each pattern to draw until it is done, specify the
                first.  Otherwise, they will stop after a set number of  itera-
                tions.  Default: no.
 
        -layers integer
                Number of pairs of patterns to draw between each erase.
