NAME
       geodesic	- animates a mesh geodesic sphere.

SYNOPSIS
       geodesic	 [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root] [-mode mode] [-no-wander]  [-no-spin]  [-fps]  [-delay  number]
       [-speed number] [-count number]

DESCRIPTION
       Animates	 a  mesh geodesic sphere of increasing and decreasing complex-
       ity. A geodesic sphere is an icosohedron	whose  equilateral  faces  are
       sub-divided  into non-equilateral triangles to more closely approximate
       a sphere.

       The animation shows the	equilateral  triangles	subdivided  into  four
       coplanar	 equilateral triangles;	and then inflated outward, causing the
       sub-triangles to	no longer be equilateral, but to more closely approxi-
       mate the	surface	of a sphere.

OPTIONS
       -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.

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

       -root   Draw on the root	window.

       -mode mesh | solid | stellated |	stellated2 | wire
	       Face/edge display style.	Default	mesh.

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

       -spin | -no-spin
	       Whether the object should spin.

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

       -delay number
	       Per-frame delay,	in microseconds.  Default:  30000  (0.03  sec-
	       onds).

       -speed number
	       Animation  speed.   2.0	means twice as fast, 0.5 means half as
	       fast.

       -count number
	       Depth (frequency) of the	geodesic sphere.  Default: 4.

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.
