Synopsis

menger [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-delay number] [-speed number] [-depth number] [-no-wander] [-no-spin] [-spin [XYZ]] [-wireframe] [-fps]

Description

This draws the three-dimensional variant of the recursive Menger Gasket, a cube-based fractal object analagous to the Sierpinski Tetrahedron.

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
Draw on the root window.
-delay number
Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 30000 (0.03 seconds.).
-speed number
Number of frames before changing shape. Default: 150.
-depth number
Max depth to descend. Default: 3. You probably don't have enough memory for 6.
-wander | -no-wander
Whether the object should wander around the screen.
-spin [XYZ]
Around which axes should the object spin?
-no-spin
None.
-wireframe
Render in wireframe instead of solid.
-fps
Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
