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


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


       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.


       xspirograph accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

               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

       -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
               iterations.  Default: no.

       -layers integer
               Number of pairs of patterns to draw between each erase.


       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.
