NAME
       lament - animates the Lament Configuration

SYNOPSIS
       lament  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-window]  [-root]  [-install]
       [-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-texture]  [-no-texture]
       [-wireframe]

DESCRIPTION
       The  lament  program  draws  an  animation  of  a particular puzzle box
       repeatedly solving itself.

OPTIONS
       lament accepts the following options:

       -window Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -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.

       -texture
               Use texture maps.  This is the default.

       -no-texture
               Do not use texture maps.  This is boring and wrong.

       -wireframe
               Only draw outlines.

       -delay microseconds
               How long to pause between frames.  Default is  20000,  or  0.02
               second.

       -fps    Display a running tally of how many frames per second are being
               rendered.  In conjunction with -delay 0, this can be  a  useful
               benchmark of your GL performance.

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.

BUGS
       This hack is glacially slow on machines lacking hardware  texture  sup-
       port.

       Occasionally  opens  doors,  admitting  theologians of the Order of the
       Gash.
