       helix - draw helical string-art patterns

       helix  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-erase-speed usecs] [-erase-mode  integer]  [-delay  seconds]  [-install]
       [-visual visual]

       The helix program draws interesting patterns composed of line segments in random colors.

       helix accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.	This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       -erase-speed usecs
	       This  controls  the  speed at which the screen will be erased. Lower numbers erase

       -erase-mode integer
	       This sets the erase mode. Mode -1 chooses a random mode each time. There are  cur-
	       rently 6 modes defined (0-5).

       -delay seconds
	       This sets the number of seconds that the helix will be on the screen.

       -subdelay microseconds
	       This sets the amount of time to pause periodically while drawing.

	       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.

       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.
