Description

This draws one of several three dimensional parametric surfaces.

Options

-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.
-window
Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root
Draw on the root window.
-delay number
Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 20000 (0.02 seconds.).
-speed number
Number of frames before changing shape. Default: 1000.
-surface random (Shortcut: -random-surface)
Display a random surface. This is the default.
-surface dini (Shortcut: -dini)
Display Dini’s surface.
-surface enneper (Shortcut: -enneper)
Display Enneper’s minimal surface.
-surface kuen (Shortcut: -kuen)
Display the Kuen surface.
-surface moebius (Shortcut: -moebius)
Display the Moebius strip.
-surface seashell (Shortcut: -seashell)
Display the seashell surface.
-surface swallowtail (Shortcut: -swallowtail)
Display the swallowtail catastrophe.
-surface bohemian (Shortcut: -bohemian)
Display the Bohemian dome.
-surface whitney (Shortcut: -whitney)
Display the Whitney umbrella.
-surface pluecker (Shortcut: -pluecker)
Display Pluecker’s conoid.
-surface henneberg (Shortcut: -henneberg)
Display Henneberg’s minimal surface.
-surface catalan (Shortcut: -catalan)
Display Catalan’s minimal surface.
-surface corkscrew (Shortcut: -corkscrew)
Display the corkscrew surface.
-mode random (Shortcut: -random-mode)
Use random OpenGL primitives to display the surface. This is the default.
-mode points (Shortcut: -points)
Use OpenGL points to display the surface.
-mode lines (Shortcut: -lines)
Use OpenGL lines to display the surface.
-mode line-loops (Shortcut: -line-loops)
Use OpenGL line loops to display the surface.
-wander | -no-wander
Whether to wander around the screen.
-spin | -no-spin
Whether to rotate around the center of the figure.
-fps
Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

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.
