NAME

       queens - n queens screensaver

SYNOPSIS

       queens  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]  [-visual  visual]
       [-delay microseconds] [-wireframe] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION

       The queens program solves the n-queens problem (where, in this program, N is between 5 and
       10  queens)  using  a straightforward backtracking algorithm.  The problem is: how may one
       place N queens on an NxN chessboard such that no queen can attack a sister?

OPTIONS

       queens 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.

       -wireframe
               Render  in  wireframe  instead of solid.  -fps Display the current frame rate, CPU
               load, and polygon count.

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.

BUGS

       It's  not  unknown  for  this  and  other OpenGL hacks to fail under hardware accelaration
       (UtahGLX) and take the X server with them.  Texture images must be 16x16 or 32x32 or 64x64
       etc.
