Synopsis

spheremonics [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-delay number] [-duration number] [-resolution number] [-wander] [-no-spin] [-spin [XYZ]] [-wireframe] [-no-smooth] [-no-grid] [-bbox] [-fps]

Description

These closed objects are commonly called spherical harmonics, although they are only remotely related to the mathematical definition found in the solution to certain wave functions, most notable the eigenfunctions of angular momentum operators.

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.).

-duration number

Duration.  5 - 1000.  Default: 100.

-resolution number

Resolution.  5 - 100.  Default: 64.

-wander | -no-wander

Whether the object should wander around the screen.

-spin [XYZ]

Around which axes should the object spin?

-no-spin

Don't spin.

-wireframe

Render in wireframe instead of solid.

-smooth | -no-smooth

Smoothed Lines.  Boolean.

-grid | -no-grid

Draw Grid.  Boolean.

-bbox | -no-bbox

Draw Bounding Box.  Boolean.

-fps

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

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.
