       xspirograph - simulates the rotation of a disk inside a circular rim


       xspirograph  [-display  host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual]
       [-delay seconds] [-subdelay useconds] [-layers integer] [-alwaysfinish]  [-noalwaysfinish]


       xspirograph  draws  patterns such as those made by a spirograph, that is, the curve traced
       by a point on a circular disk rotating on the inside of a hollow circular rim.


       xspirograph 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.

       -delay secs
               The delay between finishing one draw and starting the next. Default: 5 seconds.

       -subdelay usec
               The  time  to  delay between each hundred line draws.  Use this if you want to see
               the pattern form.  Default: 0.

       -alwaysfinish -noalwaysfinish
               If you want each pattern to draw until it is done, specify the first.   Otherwise,
               they will stop after a set number of iterations.  Default: no.

       -layers integer
               Number of pairs of patterns to draw between each erase.


       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.
