       kaleidocycle - draws twistable rings of tetrahedra


       kaleidocycle  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay
       microseconds] [-count number] [-speed number] [-wander] [-no-wander]  [-spin  axes]  [-no-
       spin] [-wireframe] [-fps]


       The  kaleidocycle  program draws a ring composed of tetrahedra connected at the edges that
       twists and rotates toroidally.  Segments are occasionally inserted or removed.


       kaleidocycle 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.

       -count number
               The  initial  number  of  segments. Default 16.  Must be 8 or greater, and an even

       -speed number
               Adjust the animation speed. 0.5 for half as fast, 2.0 for twice as fast.

       -wander Move the text around the screen.  This is the default.

               Keep the text centered on the screen.

       -spin   Which axes around which the text should spin.  The default is "Z", meaning  rotate
               the object the plane of the screen only.

               Don't spin the text at all: the same as -spin "".

               Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -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.
