DESCRIPTIONThe sballs program draws an animation of balls spinning like crazy in GL.
OPTIONSsballs accepts the following options:
- Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.

- -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.
- 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.
- -object object_number
- Specify how the spheres are grouped (forming an object). Objects are:
- cube. This is the default.
- -size viewport_size
- Viewport of GL scene is specified size if greater than 32 and less than screensize. Default value is 0, meaning full screensize.
- Show a textured background and spheres. This is the default.
- Disables texturing the animation.
- Let the mouse be a joystick to change the view of the animation. This implies -no-wander.
- Disables mouse tracking. This is the default.
- Draw a wireframe rendition of the spheres.
- 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.
