       galaxy  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  integer]  [-delay  microseconds]
       [-cycles   integer]  [-count  integer]  [-size  integer]  [-tracks]  [-no-tracks]  [-spin]



       The galaxy program draws spinning galaxies.


       galaxy accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

               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.

       -ncolors integer
               How  many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 64.  The colors used cycle
               through the hue, making N stops around the color wheel.

       -cycles integer

       -count integer

       -size integer





       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.


       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.
