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.
-root

-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.
