       ico - animate an icosahedron or other polyhedron

       ico  [-display  display]  [-geometry  geometry]	[-r]  [-d  pattern]  [-i] [-dbl] [-faces]
       [-noedges] [-sleep n] [-obj object] [-objhelp] [-colors color-list]

       Ico displays a wire-frame rotating polyhedron, with hidden lines removed, or a  solid-fill
       polyhedron  with  hidden  faces removed.  There are a number of different polyhedra avail-
       able; adding a new polyhedron to the program is quite simple.

       -r     Display on the root window instead of creating a new window.

       -d pattern
	      Specify a bit pattern for drawing dashed lines for wire frames.

       -i     Use inverted colors for wire frames.

       -dbl   Use double buffering on the display.  This works for either  wire  frame	or  solid
	      fill drawings.  For solid fill drawings, using this switch results in substantially
	      smoother movement.  Note that this requires twice as many  bit  planes  as  without
	      double  buffering.   Since  some	colors are typically allocated by other programs,
	      most eight-bit-plane displays will probably be limited to eight colors  when  using
	      double buffering.

       -faces Draw filled faces instead of wire frames.

	      Don't draw the wire frames.  Typically used only when -faces is used.

       -sleep n
	      Sleep n seconds between each move of the object.

       -obj object
	      Specify what object to draw.  If no object is specified, an icosahedron is drawn.

	      Print  out  a  list  of  the  available  objects, along with information about each

       -colors color color ...
	      Specify what colors should be used to draw the filled faces of the object.  If less
	      colors than faces are given, the colors are reused.

       Pressing  "q" will close a window. If compiled with threads support, the program will stop
       only when all threads terminate. You can also close an animation window	using  the  ICCCM
       delete  message	(deppending  on your window manager, you will have a decoration button or
       menu to send such message).

       If you have the source to ico, it is very easy to add more polyhedra.  Each polyhedron  is
       defined	in an include file by the name of objXXX.h, where XXX is something related to the
       name of the polyhedron.	The format of the include file is defined in the file polyinfo.h.
       Look  at  the  file  objcube.h to see what the exact format of an objXXX.h file should be,
       then create your objXXX.h file in that format.

       After making the new objXXX.h file (or copying in a new one from elsewhere), simply  do	a
       'make  depend'.	 This  will  recreate the file allobjs.h, which lists all of the objXXX.h
       files.  Doing a 'make' after this will rebuild ico with the new object information.


       Pyramids and tetrahedrons with filled faces do not display correctly.

       A separate color cell is allocated for each name in the -colors list, even when	the  same
       name  may  be  specified  twice.   Color allocation fails in TrueColor displays and option
       -faces does not work well.
