       sballs - draws balls spinning like crazy in GL


       sballs   [-display   host:display.screen]   [-window]  [-root]  [-visual  visual]  [-delay
       microseconds]  [-object  object_number]  [-cycles  sphere_speed]   [-size   viewport_size]
       [-texture]   [-no-texture]  [-wireframe]  [-no-wireframe]  [-trackmouse]  [-no-trackmouse]


       The sballs program draws an animation of balls spinning like crazy in GL.


       sballs 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.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

       -object object_number
               Specify how the spheres are grouped (forming an object).  Objects are:

       1         tetrahedron

       2         cube. This is the default.

       3         octahedron

       4         dodecahedron

       5         icosahedron

       6         plane

       7         pyramid

       8         star

       -size viewport_size
               Viewport  of  GL  scene  is  specified  size  if  greater  than  32  and less than
               screensize. Default value is 0, meaning full screensize.

               Show a textured background and spheres. This is the default.

               Disables texturing the animation.

               Let the mouse be a joystick to change the view of  the  animation.   This  implies

               Disables mouse tracking. This is the default.

       -wire   Draw a wireframe rendition of the spheres.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

               to  get  the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in
