glsnake - OpenGL enhanced Rubik's Snake cyclewaster.
glsnake [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-wireframe] [-scarycolour] [-veloc- ity angular] [-explode distance] [-statictime milliseconds] [-yspin angle] [-zspin angle]
glsnake is an imitation of Rubiks' Snake, using OpenGL.
glsnake accepts the following options: -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -install Install a private colormap for the window. -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. -fps Display a running tally of how many frames per second are being rendered. In conjunction with -delay 0, this can be a useful benchmark of your GL performance. -wireframe Display the snake in wireframe mode, rather than the default solid mode. -scarycolour Use the alternate colour scheme for the snake. Shape identification using colour will be disabled. -velocity angular Change the speed at which the snake morphs to a new shape. -explode distance Change the distance between the nodes of a snake. -statictime milliseconds Change the time between morphs. -yspin angle Change the angle of rotation around the Y axis per frame. -zspin angle Change the angle of rotation around the Z axis per frame.
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.
/usr/share/glsnake/*.glsnake This XScreenSaver will attempt to read model files installed with the interactive glsnake.

The snake will happily intersect itself while morphing (this is not a bug). The rotation/camera position sucks.
