NAME
       ant - cellular automaton.

SYNOPSIS
       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]

DESCRIPTION
       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.

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.

       -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.

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.
