XScreenSaver(1) 		     General Commands Manual			  XScreenSaver(1)

NAME
       gltext - draws text spinning around in 3D

SYNOPSIS
       gltext [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay microsec-
       onds] [-fps] [-text string] [-wander] [-no-wander] [-spin axes] [-no-spin]

DESCRIPTION
       The gltext program draws some text spinning around in 3D, using a font that appears to  be
       made of solid tubes.

OPTIONS
       gltext 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.

       -text string
	       The text to display.  This may contain newlines, but it shouldn't  be  very  long.
	       The default is to display the machine name and OS version.

	       This  may  also be a format string acceptable to date(1) and strftime(3), in which
	       case, it will be updated once a second.	So to make this program display  a  spin-
	       ning digital clock, you could do this:
	       gltext -text "%A%n%d %b %Y%n%l:%M:%S %p"
	       To include a literal `%', you must double it: `%%'.

	       See the man page for strftime(3) for more details.

       -fps    Display a running tally of how many frames per second are being rendered.  In con-
	       junction with -delay 0, this can be a useful benchmark of your GL performance.

       -wander Move the text around the screen.  This is the default.

       -no-wander
	       Keep the text centered on the screen.

       -spin   Which axes around which the text should	spin.	The  default  is  "XYZ",  meaning
	       rotate  it  freely  in space.  "-spin Z" would rotate the text in the plane of the
	       screen while not rotating it into or out of the screen; etc.

       -no-spin
	       Don't spin the text at all: the same as -spin "".

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.
