queens [--display host:display.screen] [--window] [--root] [--window-id number] [--install] [--visual visual] [--delay microseconds] [--wireframe] [--fps]
The queens program solves the n-queens problem (where, in this program, N is between 5 and 10 queens) using a straightforward backtracking algorithm. The problem is: how may one place N queens on an NxN chessboard such that no queen can attack a sister?
queens accepts the following options:
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
Draw on the root window.
- --window-id number
Draw on the specified window.
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.
Render in wireframe instead of solid. --fps Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.
to get the default host and display number.
to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
The window ID to use with --root.
It's not unknown for this and other OpenGL hacks to fail under hardware accelaration (UtahGLX) and take the X server with them. Texture images must be 16x16 or 32x32 or 64x64 etc.
