The squiral program displays interacting, spiral-producing automata
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.
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.
