NAME

spheremonics - 3d spherical harmonic shapes.  

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 | -no-fps
Whether to show a frames-per-second display at the bottom of the screen.
 

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.
