NAME

lament - animates the Lament Configuration  

SYNOPSIS

lament [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-texture] [-no-texture] [-wireframe]  

DESCRIPTION

The lament program draws an animation of a particular puzzle box repeatedly solving itself.  

OPTIONS

lament accepts the following options:
-window
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root
Draw on the root window.
-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.
-texture
Use texture maps. This is the default.
-no-texture
Do not use texture maps. This is boring and wrong.
-wireframe
Only draw outlines.
-delay microseconds
How long to pause between frames. Default is 20000, or 0.02 second.
-fps
Display a running tally of how many frames per second are being rendered. In conjunction with -delay 0, this can be a useful benchmark of your GL performance.
 

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.
 

BUGS

This hack is glacially slow on machines lacking hardware texture support.

Occasionally opens doors, admitting theologians of the Order of the Gash.
