NAME
       kaleidocycle - draws twistable rings of tetrahedra

SYNOPSIS
       kaleidocycle  [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual
       visual] [-delay microseconds] [-count number] [-speed number] [-wander]
       [-no-wander] [-spin axes] [-no-spin] [-wireframe] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION
       The  kaleidocycle program draws a ring composed of tetrahedra connected
       at the edges that twists	and rotates toroidally.	  Segments  are	 occa-
       sionally	inserted or removed.

OPTIONS
       kaleidocycle 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.

       -count number
	       The  initial  number  of	 segments.  Default  16.  Must be 8 or
	       greater,	and an even number.

       -speed number
	       Adjust the animation speed. 0.5 for half	as fast, 2.0 for twice
	       as fast.

       -wander Move the	text around the	screen.	 This is the default.

       -no-wander
	       Keep the	text centered on the screen.

       -spin   Which  axes  around which the text should spin.	The default is
	       "Z", meaning rotate the object the plane	of the screen only.

       -no-spin
	       Don't spin the text at all: the same as -spin "".

       -wireframe
	       Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -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.
