DESCRIPTION
       The squiral program displays interacting, spiral-producing automata

OPTIONS
       squiral 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.

       -fill percent
	       Specify the percent (0-100) of the screen which must be filled before  the  screen
	       is cleared.  60-80 percent are good values.

       -count number
	       The number of squiralies.  By default, the screen width divided by 32.

       -delay usec
	       The wait between steps.	The default is 1000.

       -disorder fraction
	       The  fraction  of the time a squiraly will choose a new direction.  The default is
	       0.005.

       -handedness fraction
	       The fraction of the time a squiraly will choose to  enter  lefthanded  mode.   0.0
	       means  exclusively  right-handed  behavior, 0.5 (the default) is a balance between
	       the two, and 1.0 is exclusively left-handed behaviour.
