NAME
       squiral - square	spirals	screensaver

SYNOPSIS
       squiral [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window]	[-root]	[-mono]	[-install] [-noinstall]	[-visual  vis-
       ual] [-fill percent] [-count number] [-delay usec] [-disorder fraction]
       [-handedness fraction] [-cycle] [-fps]

DESCRIPTION
       The squiral program displays interacting, spiral-producing automata

OPTIONS
       squiral accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root	window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       -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.

       -fill percent
	       Specify the percent (0-100) of the screen which must be	filled
	       before the screen is cleared.  60-80 percent are	good values.

       -count number
	       The number of squiralies.  By default, the screen width divided
	       by 32.

       -delay usec
	       The wait	between	steps.	The default is 1000.

       -disorder fraction
	       The fraction of the time	a squiraly will	choose	a  new	direc-
	       tion.  The default is 0.005.

       -handedness fraction
	       The  fraction of	the time a squiraly will choose	to enter left-
	       handed mode.  0.0 means exclusively right-handed	behavior,  0.5
	       (the  default)  is a balance between the	two, and 1.0 is	exclu-
	       sively left-handed behaviour.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

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.
