DESCRIPTION
       The sballs program draws	an animation of	balls spinning like  crazy  in
       GL.

       -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.

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

       -object object_number
	       Specify	how  the spheres are grouped (forming an object).  Ob-
	       jects are:

       1	 tetrahedron

       2	 cube. This is the default.

       -trackmouse
	       Let the mouse be	a joystick to change the view  of  the	anima-
	       tion.  This implies -no-wander.
