       lament - animates the Lament Configuration


       lament  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]  [-visual  visual]
       [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-texture] [-no-texture] [-wireframe]


       The lament program draws an animation  of  a  particular  puzzle  box  repeatedly  solving


       lament 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.

               Use texture maps.  This is the default.

               Do not use texture maps.  This is boring and wrong.

               Only draw outlines.

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

       -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.


       This hack is glacially slow on machines lacking hardware texture support.

       Occasionally opens doors, admitting theologians of the Order of the Gash.
