       sballs - draws balls spinning like crazy in GL

       sballs [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay microsec-
       onds] [-object object_number] [-count  number_of_spheres]  [-cycles  sphere_speed]  [-size
       viewport_size]  [-texture]  [-no-texture] [-wireframe] [-no-wireframe] [-trackmouse] [-no-
       trackmouse] [-fps] [-no-fps]

       The sballs program draws an animation of balls spinning like crazy in GL.

       sballs accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

	       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 con-
	       junction with -delay 0, this can be a useful benchmark of your GL performance.

       -object object_number
	       Specify how the spheres are grouped (forming an object).  Objects are:

       1	 tetrahedron

       2	 cube. This is the default.

       3	 octahedron

       4	 dodecahedron

       5	 icosahedron

       6	 plane

       7	 pyramid

       8	 star

       -count number_of_spheres
	       Specify how much spheres are drawn in the selected object.

       -size viewport_size
	       Viewport of GL scene is specified size if greater than 32 and  less  than  screen-
	       size. Default value is 0, meaning full screensize.

       -count number_of_particles
	       Specify	how  much  fire  particles are drawn. A very special case is 0 wich means
	       that you get rain !

	       Show a textured background and spheres. This is the default.

	       Disables texturing the animation.

	       Let the mouse be a joystick to change the view of  the  animation.   This  implies

	       Disables mouse tracking. This is the default.

       -wire   Draw a wireframe rendition of the spheres.

       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.
