       xspirograph - simulates the rotation of a disk inside a circular rim

       xspirograph  [-display  host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-install] [-visual visual]
       [-delay seconds] [-subdelay useconds] [-layers integer] [-alwaysfinish] [-noalwaysfinish]

       xspirograph draws patterns such as those made by a spirograph, that is, the  curve  traced
       by a point on a circular disk rotating on the inside of a hollow circular rim.

       xspirograph 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.

       -delay secs
	       The delay between finishing one draw and starting the next. Default: 5 seconds.

       -subdelay usec
	       The time to delay between each hundred line draws.  Use this if you  want  to  see
	       the pattern form.  Default: 0.

       -alwaysfinish -noalwaysfinish
	       If  you want each pattern to draw until it is done, specify the first.  Otherwise,
	       they will stop after a set number of iterations.  Default: no.

       -layers integer
	       Number of pairs of patterns to draw between each erase.

       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.
