glsnake — OpenGL enhanced Rubik's Snake cyclewaster.

Synopsis

glsnake [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-wireframe] [-altcolour] [-angvel angular] [-explode distance] [-statictime milliseconds] [-yangvel angle] [-zangvel angle]

Description

glsnake is an imitation of Rubiks´ Snake, using OpenGL.

Options

glsnake 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.

-fps

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

-wireframe

Display the snake in wireframe mode, rather than the default solid mode.

-altcolour

Use the alternate colour scheme for the snake.  Shape identification using colour will be disabled.

-angvel angular

Change the speed at which the snake morphs to a new shape.

-explode distance

Change the distance between the nodes of a snake.

-statictime milliseconds

Change the time between morphs.

-yangvel angle

Change the angle of rotation around the Y axis per frame.

-zangvel angle

Change the angle of rotation around the Z axis per frame.

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.

Files

/usr/share/glsnake/*.glsnake

This XScreenSaver will attempt to read model files installed with the interactive glsnake.

Bugs

The snake will happily intersect itself while morphing (this is not a bug).

The rotation/camera position sucks.
