NAME

       ifs - draws spinning, colliding iterated-function-system images

SYNOPSIS

       ifs  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual] [-window] [-root] [-no-db] [-delay
       number] [-detail number]  [-colors  number]  [-functions  number]  [-iterate  |  -recurse]
       [-no-rotate] [-no-scale] [-no-translate] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION

       The ifs program draws spinning, colliding iterated-function-system images.

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.

       -no-db  Disable double-buffering.

       -delay number
               Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default: 20000

       -colors number
               Number of colours to use. Default: 200

       -detail number
               In -iterate mode, number of times to randomly iterate the functions, in thousands.
               In  -recurse  mode,  number  of  times to apply functions (recursion depth) before
               drawing each point.  Default: 9

       -functions number
               Number of functions to be iterated. Default: 3

       -iterate
               Calculate by iteratively applying the functions in a random order, usually  faster
               than -recurse.  This is the default.

       -recurse
               Calculate  by recursively applying all combinations of the functions.  This is the
               historical behavior and may produce neater output than -iterate.

       -no-rotate
               Disable the rotation component of the functions.

       -no-scale
               Disable the scaling component of the functions.

       -no-translate
               Disable the varying translation component of the functions.

       -no-multi
               Turn off multi-coloured mode, only one colour is used to colour the whole set.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

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.
