NAME
       julia - draws spinning, animating julia-set fractals

SYNOPSIS
       julia  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground  color] [-background color] [-window]
       [-root] [-mono] [-install]  [-visual  visual]  [-ncolors  integer]  [-delay  microseconds]
       [-cycles integer] [-count integer] [-mouse] [-nomouse]

DESCRIPTION
       The julia program draws spinning, animating julia-set fractals.

       It uses ifs {w0 = sqrt(x-c), w1 = -sqrt(x-c)} with random iteration to plot the julia set,
       and sinusoidially varied parameters for the set, and plots parameters with a circle.

       One thing to note is that count is the depth of the search tree, so the number  of  points
       computed is (2^count)-1.  I use 8 or 9 on a dx266 and it looks okay.  The sinusoidal vari-
       ation of the parameter might not be as interesting as it could, but it still gives an idea
       of the effect of the parameter.

OPTIONS
       julia 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.

       -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.

       -ncolors integer
	       How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 200.  The colors used cycle
	       through the hue, making N stops around the color wheel.

       -cycles integer

       -count integer

       -mouse

       -nomouse
	       If  -mouse  is  specified, the control point of the Julia set will be derived from
	       the position of the mouse in the window.  When the mouse is not in the window, the
	       control point is chosen the normal way.

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.
