Description

Draws a series of overlapping, translucent spiral patterns. The tightness of their spirals fluctuates in and out.

Options

-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.

-window

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

-delay int

Delay between frames, in microseconds.  Default 20000.

-layers int

How many different spirals to draw at once.  Default 4.

-count int

How many arms each spiral should have.  Default 11.

-twistiness float

How tightly wound the spirals can become, measured in rotations. Default 4.0 (four times around).

-speed ratio

Less than 1 for slower, greater than 1 for faster.  Default 1.

-wander

If specified, then the centers of the spirals will wander around, rather than them all having the same origin.
