       squiral  [-display  host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-noinstall] [-visual visual] [-fill percent]  [-count  number]
       [-delay usec] [-disorder fraction] [-handedness fraction] [-cycle] [-fps]


       The squiral program displays interacting, spiral-producing automata


       squiral 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.

       -fill percent
               Specify the percent (0-100) of the screen which must be filled before  the  screen
               is cleared.  60-80 percent are good values.

       -count number
               The number of squiralies.  By default, the screen width divided by 32.

       -delay usec
               The wait between steps.  The default is 1000.

       -disorder fraction
               The  fraction  of the time a squiraly will choose a new direction.  The default is

       -handedness fraction
               The fraction of the time a squiraly will choose to  enter  lefthanded  mode.   0.0
               means  exclusively  right-handed  behavior, 0.5 (the default) is a balance between
               the two, and 1.0 is exclusively left-handed behaviour.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.


       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.
