       dymaxionmap  -  An animation of Buckminster Fuller's unwrapped icosahe-
       dral globe.

       dymaxionmap [-display host:display.screen] [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root]	[-delay	 number]  [-speed ratio] [-no-wander] [-no-roll] [-no-
       stars] [-no-grid] [-flat] [-satellite]  [-image	file]  [-image2	 file]
       [-frames	number]	[-wireframe] [-fps]

       Buckminster  Fuller's map of the	Earth projected	onto the surface of an
       unfolded	icosahedron. It	depicts	the Earth's continents as one  island,
       or nearly contiguous land masses.

       This  screen  saver  animates  the  progression	of the dusk terminator
       across the flattened globe. It includes both satellite and flat-colored
       map  imagery,  and can load and convert other Equirectangular-projected

       -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

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

       -root   Draw on the root	window.

       -delay number
	       Per-frame delay,	in microseconds.  Default:  20000  (0.02  sec-

       -speed ratio
	       Speed  of  the animation. 0.5 means half	as fast, 2 means twice
	       as fast.

       -wander | -no-wander
	       Whether the object should wander	 around	 the  screen.  Default

       -roll | -no-roll
	       Whether the object should roll randomly.	Default	yes.

       -stars |	-no-stars
	       Whether to display a star field.	Default	yes.

       -grid | -no-grid
	       Whether	to overlay a latitude/longitude	grid over the map. De-
	       fault yes.

       -flat   Display a flat-colored map of the Earth.	This is	the default.

	       Display a day-time satellite map	of the Earth.

       -image file
	       An image	to use for the day-time	map.

       -image2 file
	       An image	to use for the night-time map.	The two	images can  be
	       the same: the night-time	one will be darkened.

       -frames number
	       The  number  of frames in the day/night animation. Default 720.
	       Larger  numbers	are  smoother,	but  use  more	memory.	   The
	       day/night  animation  happens if	image2 is set, or if frames is
	       greater than 1.

       -wireframe | -no-wireframe
	       Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -fps | -no-fps
	       Whether to show a frames-per-second display at  the  bottom  of
	       the screen.

       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.
