       glblur - 3D radial blur texture fields

       menger   [-display   host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root] [-delay  number]  [-blursize  number]  [-no-wander]  [-no-spin]
       [-spin [XYZ]] [-wireframe] [-fps]

       This  program  draws  a  box  and  a few line segments, and generates a
       radial blur outward from it.  This creates flowing field effects.

       This is done by rendering the scene into a small texture, then  repeat-
       edly  rendering increasingly-enlarged and increasingly-transparent ver-
       sions of that texture onto the  frame  buffer.   As  such,  it's  quite
       graphics  intensive:  don't bother trying to run this if you don't have
       hardware-accelerated texture support.  It will hurt your machine bad.

       -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

       -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:  10000  (0.01  sec-

       -blursize number
               How  many  copies  of the scene should be laid down to make the
               vapor trail.  Default:  15.   Larger  numbers  create  smoother
               fields, but are slower.

       -wander | -no-wander
               Whether the object should wander around the screen.

       -spin [XYZ]
               Around which axes should the object spin?


               Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -fps | -no-fps
               Whether  to  show  a frames-per-second display at the bottom of
               the screen.

       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.
