       geodesic - animates a mesh geodesic sphere.


       geodesic  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-mode mode]
       [-no-wander] [-no-spin] [-fps] [-delay number] [-speed number] [-count number]


       Animates a mesh geodesic sphere of increasing and decreasing complexity. A geodesic sphere
       is  an  icosohedron whose equilateral faces are sub-divided into non-equilateral triangles
       to more closely approximate a sphere.

       The animation shows the equilateral triangles subdivided into  four  coplanar  equilateral
       triangles;  and  then  inflated  outward,  causing  the  sub-triangles  to  no  longer  be
       equilateral, but to more closely approximate the surface of a sphere.


       -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.

       -mode mesh | solid | stellated | stellated2 | wire
               Face/edge display style. Default mesh.

       -wander | -no-wander
               Whether the object should wander around the screen.

       -spin | -no-spin
               Whether the object should spin.

       -fps | -no-fps
               Whether to show a frames-per-second display at the bottom of the screen.

       -delay number
               Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default: 30000 (0.03 seconds).

       -speed number
               Animation speed.  2.0 means twice as fast, 0.5 means half as fast.

       -count number
               Depth (frequency) of the geodesic sphere.  Default: 4.


       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.
