DESCRIPTION

       Ed  Mackey  reports  that he wrote the first version of this program in
       BASIC on a  Commodore  64  in  1987,  as  a  320x200  black  and  white
       wireframe. Now it is GL and has specular reflections.

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:  40000  (0.04
               seconds.).

       -spinspeed number
               0.1 - 15.0.  Default: 5.0.

       -count number
               0 - 100.  Default: 25.

       -cycles number
               0 - 100.  Default: 40.

       -wireframe
               Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
