WORMS(6) BSD Games Manual WORMS(6)
worms -- animate worms on a display terminal
worms [-ft] [-d delay] [-l length] [-n number]
A UNIX version of the DEC-2136 program ``worms''.
The options are as follows:
-d delay Specifies a delay, in milliseconds, between each update. This
is useful for fast terminals. Reasonable values are around
20-200. The default is based on the terminal speed. If the
terminal is 9600 baud or slower no delay is used. Otherwise,
the delay is computed via the following formula:
delay = speed / 9600 - 1
-f Makes a ``field'' for the worm(s) to eat.
-l length Specifies a length for each worm; the default is 16.
-n number Specifies the number of worms; the default is 3.
-t Makes each worm leave a trail behind it.
The lower-right-hand character position will not be updated properly on a
terminal that wraps at the right margin.
