] [-cycle-colors integer
] [-max-age integer
program draws a cellular automaton based on Conway's Life,
except that cells have a maximum age, and only one pixel per cell is drawn
accepts the following options:
- Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
- Draw on the root window.
- If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome
- 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.
- -cycle-delay integer
- Time in microseconds to sleep between ticks. Default
- -cycle-colors integer
- How many ticks should elapse between cycling colors. 0 to
disable color cycling. Default 2.
- -ncolors integer
- How many colors should be used (if possible). Default 64.
The colors are chosen randomly.
- -cell-size integer
- Size of each cell, in powers of 2. Default 3 (8-pixel
- -initial-density integer
- Percentage of cells that are alive at start and when the
field is repopulated. Default 30.
- -max-age integer
- Maximum age for a cell. Default 64.
- Display the current frame rate and CPU load.
- 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.
