NAME
       pinion -	draws a	scrolling sequence of interconnected gears

SYNOPSIS
       pinion  [-display  host:display.screen]	[-window]  [-root]  [-install]
       [-visual	visual]	[-delay	usecs] [-scroll	ratio]	[-spin	ratio]	[-size
       ratio] [-max-rpm	int] [-wireframe] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION
       The  pinion  program draws an interconnected set	of gears moving	across
       the screen.

OPTIONS
       pinion 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 usecs
	       The delay between frames	of the animation, in microseconds: de-
	       fault 15000.

       -spin ratio
	       How  fast  the gears should spin; default 1.0.  2.0 means twice
	       as fast,	0.5 means half as fast.

       -scroll ratio
	       How fast	the gears should scroll	past the screen; default  1.0.
	       2.0 means twice as fast,	0.5 means half as fast.

       -size ratio
	       How  big	 the  gears  should  be, on average; default 1.0.  2.0
	       means twice as large, 0.5 means half as large.

       -max-rpm	integer
	       If any gear exceeds the maximum RPM, the	current	gear train  is
	       broken there, and we start a new	train.	Default: 900 RPM.  (At
	       30 FPS, that's about half a rotation per	frame.)

       -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.
