NAME
       squiral - square spirals screensaver

SYNOPSIS
       squiral [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background
       color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-noinstall] [-visual  vis-
       ual] [-fill percent] [-count number] [-delay usec] [-disorder fraction]
       [-handedness fraction] [-cycle]

DESCRIPTION
       The squiral program displays interacting, spiral-producing automata


OPTIONS
       squiral accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display.

       -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.

       -fill percent
               Specify the percent (0-100) of the screen which must be  filled
               before the screen is cleared.  60-80 percent are good values.

       -count number
               The number of squiralies.  By default, the screen width divided
               by 32.

       -delay usec
               The wait between steps.  The default is 1000.

       -disorder fraction
               The fraction of the time a squiraly will choose  a  new  direc-
               tion.  The default is 0.005.

       -handedness fraction
               The  fraction of the time a squiraly will choose to enter left-
               handed mode.  0.0 means exclusively right-handed behavior,  0.5
               (the  default)  is a balance between the two, and 1.0 is exclu-
               sively left-handed behaviour.

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
       None known
