NAME
       worms  -  animate worms on a display terminal

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/games/worms [ -field ] [ -length # ] [ -number # ] [ -trail ]

DESCRIPTION
       Brian  Horn  (cithep!bdh) showed me a TOPS-20 program on the DEC-2136 machine called WORM,
       and suggested that I write a similar program that would run under Unix.	 I  did,  and  no
       apologies.

       -field  makes  a  "field" for the worm(s) to eat; -trail causes each worm to leave a trail
       behind it.  You can figure out the rest by yourself.

FILES
       /etc/termcap

BUGS
       The lower-right-hand character position will not be updated properly on	a  terminal  that
       wraps at the right margin.

       Terminal initialization is not performed.
