NAME
       cubicgrid - rotating 3D lattice seen from inside

SYNOPSIS
       cubicgrid  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual] [-window]
       [-root] [-install] [-delay microseconds]	[-mono]	[-speed	number]	[-zoom
       number] [-ticks number] [-bigdots] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  shows  the  view	of an observer located inside a	set of
       points arranged to a 3D lattice.	 As the	lattice	rotates, various view-
       throughs	appear and evolve.  A simple idea with interesting results.

OPTIONS
       cubicgrid accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.	This is	the default.

       -root   Draw on the root	window.

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

       -mono   Draw in black and white.	 If not	used, a	fixed all-color	scheme
	       is chosen.

       -speed number
	       The  maximum  speed of the rotation.  The actual	speed and axis
	       change smoothly for better effect.  0.5 - 10.  The  default  is
	       1.0.

       -zoom number
	       Size  of	 the  lattice.	Ideally	it should fill all the screen,
	       but one may find	other values also interesting.	5 -  50.   The
	       default of 20 should do for common screen aspect	ratios.

       -ticks number
	       The count of points drawn along every axis.  10 - 100.  The de-
	       fault is	30.

       -bigdots
	       Draw the	points twice as	big.

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

ENVIRONMENT
       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
	       to get the name of a resource file that	overrides  the	global
	       resources stored	in the RESOURCE_MANAGER	property.
