       flame - draw weird cosmic fractals


       flame  [-display  host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual  visual]  [-colors
       integer]  [-iterations integer] [-points integer] [-delay microseconds]
       [-delay2 microseconds] [-fps]


       The flame program generates colorful fractal displays.


       flame 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

       -colors integer
               How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 64.

       -iterations integer
               How many fractals to generate.  Default 25.

       -points integer
               How many pixels to draw for each fractal.  Default 10000.

       -delay microseconds
               How long we should wait between drawing each fractal.   Default
               50000, or about 1/20th second.

       -delay2 microseconds
               How  long  we  should wait before clearing the screen when each
               run ends.  Default 2000000, or two seconds.

       -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.
