       cubicgrid - rotating 3D lattice seen from inside


       cubicgrid  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual] [-window] [-root] [-install]
       [-delay microseconds] [-mono] [-speed number] [-zoom number]  [-ticks  number]  [-bigdots]


       This program shows the view of an observer located inside a set of points arranged to a 3D
       lattice.  As the lattice rotates, various view-throughs appear and evolve.  A simple  idea
       with interesting results.


       cubicgrid 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 visual.

       -delay microseconds
               How long to pause between frames.  Default is 20000, or 0.02 second.

       -mono   Draw in black and white.  If not used, a fixed all-color scheme is chosen.

       -speed number
               The maximum speed of the rotation.  The actual speed and axis change smoothly  for
               better effect.  0.5 - 10.  The default is 1.0.

       -zoom number
               Size  of  the  lattice.   Ideally  it should fill all the screen, but one may find
               other values also interesting.  5 - 50.  The default of 20 should  do  for  common
               screen aspect ratios.

       -ticks number
               The count of points drawn along every axis.  10 - 100.  The default is 30.

               Draw the points twice as big.

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


       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.
