WORMS(6)                       BSD Games Manual                       WORMS(6)

NAME
     worms -- animate worms on a display terminal

SYNOPSIS
     worms [-ft] [-d delay] [-l length] [-n number]

DESCRIPTION
     A UNIX version of the DEC-2136 program ``worms''.

     The options are as follows:

     -f      Makes a ``field'' for the worm(s) to eat.

     -t      Makes each worm leave a trail behind it.

     -d      Specifies a delay, in milliseconds, between each update.  This is
             useful for fast terminals.  Reasonable values are around 20-200.
             The default is 0.

     -l      Specifies a length for each worm; the default is 16.

     -n      Specifies the number of worms; the default is 3.
