NAME
achilles - OpenGL simulation of artificial life and evolution SYNOPSIS
achilles [-x <num of blocks in x axis> ] [-z <num of blocks in z axis> ] [-f <num of initial foods> ] [ <num of initial creatures> ] [-v] [-h] DESCRIPTION
This manual page documents briefly the achilles commands. It is an artificial evolution simulation based on Hebbian neural networks and ideas set forth in Larry Yaeger's PolyWorld. Run the achilles -h command to find out the default values for the options. OPTIONS
-x <num of blocks in the x axis> How big the world should be, along the x axis. -z <num of blocks in the z axis> How big the world should be, along the z axis. -f <num of initial foods> How many food items there should be at the start. <num of initial creatures> How many creatures the world should start off with. -v Output the version number. -h Output a help text.

NAME
postdaisy - PostScript translator for Diablo 630 daisy-wheel files SYNOPSIS
postdaisy [-c num] [-f num] [-h num] [-m num] [-n num] [-o list] [-p mode] [-r num] [-s num] [-v num ] [-x num] [-y num] [file...] /usr/lib/lp/postscript/postdaisy DESCRIPTION
The postdaisy filter translates Diablo 630 daisy-wheel files into PostScript and writes the results on the standard output. If no files are specified, or if - is one of the input files, the standard input is read. OPTIONS
-c num Print num copies of each page. By default only one copy is printed. -f name Print files using font name. Any PostScript font can be used, although the best results will be obtained only with constant-width fonts. The default font is Courier. -h num Set the initial horizontal motion index to num. Determines the character advance and the default point size, unless the -s option is used. The default is 12. -m num Magnify each logical page by the factor num. Pages are scaled uniformly about the origin, which is located near the upper left corner of each page. The default magnification is 1.0. -n num Print num logical pages on each piece of paper, where num can be any positive integer. By default, num is set to 1. -o list Print pages whose numbers are given in the comma-separated list. The list contains single numbers N and ranges N1 - N2. A missing N1 means the lowest numbered page, a missing N2 means the highest. The page range is an expression of logical pages rather than physical sheets of paper. For example, if you are printing two logical pages to a sheet, and you specified a range of 4, then two sheets of paper would print, containing four page layouts. If you specified a page range of 3-4, when requesting two logical pages to a sheet; then only page 3 and page 4 layouts would print, and they would appear on one physical sheet of paper. -p mode Print files in either portrait or landscape mode. Only the first character of mode is significant. The default mode is portrait. -r num Selects carriage return and line feed behavior. If num is 1, a line feed generates a carriage return. If num is 2, a carriage return generates a line feed. Setting num to 3 enables both modes. -s num Use point size num instead of the default value set by the initial horizontal motion index. -v num Set the initial vertical motion index to num. The default is 8. -x num Translate the origin num inches along the positive x axis. The default coordinate system has the origin fixed near the upper left corner of the page, with positive x to the right and positive y down the page. Positive num moves everything right. The default offset is 0.25 inches. -y num Translate the origin num inches along the positive y axis. Positive num moves text up the page. The default offset is -0.25 inches. EXIT STATUS
The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. non-zero An error occurred. FILES
