flyingtoasters - 3d space-age jet-powered flying toasters (and toast)
] [-window] [-root] [-delay number
] [-speed number
] [-nslices number
] [-no-texture] [-wireframe]
Draws a squadron of shiny 3D space-age jet-powered flying toasters, and
associated toast, flying across your screen.
- -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.
- Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
- Draw on the root window.
- -delay number
- Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 30000 (0.03
- -speed number
- How fast the toasters fly. Larger for faster. Default:
- -ntoasters number
- How many toasters to draw. Default 20.
- -nslices number
- How many slices of toast to draw. Default 25.
- Turn off texture mapping (for slow machines.)
- Render in wireframe instead of solid.
- Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon
- 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.

The original After Dark flying toasters, with the fluffy white wings, were a
trademark of Berkeley Systems. Berkeley Systems ceased to exist some time in
1998, having been gobbled up by Sierra Online, who were subsequently gobbled
up by Flipside and/or Vivendi (it's hard to tell exactly what happened when.)
I doubt anyone even cares any more, but if they do, hopefully this homage, with
the space-age 3D jet-plane toasters, will be considered different enough that
whoever still owns the trademark to the fluffy-winged 2D bitmapped toasters
won't get all huffy at us.
