SYNOPSIS

surfaces [−display host:display.screen] [−visual visual] [−window] [−root] [−speed number] [−rand] [−spin] [−wander] [−fps] [−surface surface-name] [−random-surface] [−dini] [−enneper] [−kuen] [−moebius] [−seashell] [−swallowtail] [−bohemian] [−whitney] [−pluecker] [−henneberg] [−catalan] [−corkscrew] [−mode display-mode] [−random-mode] [−points] [−lines] [−line-loops]

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.
