ant - cellular automaton.
ant [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-install] [-noinstall] [-root] [-eyes] [-no-eyes] [-truchet] [-no-truchet] [-sharpturn] [-no-sharpturn] [-delay number] [-cycles number] [-count number] [-size number] [-neighbors 3] [-neighbors 4] [-neighbors 6] [-neighbors 9] [-neighbors 12] [-ncolors number]
A cellular automaton that is really a two-dimensional Turing machine: as the heads ("ants") walk along the screen, they change pixel values in their path. Then, as they pass over changed pixels, their behavior is influenced.
-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. -sharpturns | -no-sharpturns Whether to do sharp turns. -truchet | -no-truchet Whether to use truchet lines. -eyes | -no-eyes Whether to draw eyes on the ants. -delay number Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 1000 (0.0001 seconds.). -cycles number How long to wait until resetting. 0 - 800000. Default: 40000. -count number Ants Count. -20 - 20. Default: -3. -size number Ant Size. -18 - 18. Default: -12. -neighbors N How many neighbors each cell has. Legal values are 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12. -ncolors number Number of colors. Default: 64.
