NAME

hyperball - 2d projection of a 4d object  

SYNOPSIS

hyperball [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-xy float] [-xz float] [-yz float] [-xw float] [-yw float] [-zw float] [-delay usecs] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual]  

DESCRIPTION

The hyperball program displays a wireframe projection of a hyperball which is rotating at user-specified rates around any or all of its four axes.  

OPTIONS

hyperball accepts the following options:
-window
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root
Draw on the root window.
-mono
If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.
-install
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.
-delay microseconds
How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the animation. Default 20000, or about 0.02 seconds.
-xw float
-xy float
-xz float
-yw float
-yz float
-zw float
The amount that the ball should be rotated around the specified axis at each frame of the animation, expressed in 0.001 radians. These should be small floating-point values (less than 50 works best.) Default: xy=3, xz=5, yw=10.
 

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.
