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.
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.
Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 1000 (0.0001 seconds.).
How long to wait until resetting. 0 - 800000. Default: 40000.
Ants Count. -20 - 20. Default: -3.
Ant Size. -18 - 18. Default: -12.
How many neighbors each cell has. Legal values are 3, 4, 6, 9, and 12.
Number of colors. Default: 64.
DISPLAY 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.
