       hopalong - draw real plane fractals


       hopalong  [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  integer]  [-delay  microseconds]
       [-cycles integer] [-count integer] [-jong] [-no-jong] [-jong] [-no-sine]



       The  hop program generates real plane fractals as described in the September 1986 issue of
       Scientific American.


       hopalong 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 200.  The colors used cycle
               through the hue, making N stops around the color wheel.

       -cycles integer
               How long to run each batch.  Default 2500 pixels.

       -count integer
               How many pixels should be drawn before a color change.  Default 1000.

       -jong integer

       -no-jong integer
               Whether to use the Jong format (default is to choose randomly.)

       -sine integer

       -no-sine integer
               Whether to use the Sine format (default is to choose randomly.)

       -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.
