Draws a stick-man juggling various collections of objects.
accepts the following options:
- -display host:display.screen
- X11 display to use. Overrides DISPLAY environment
- Draw on the root window.
- Draw on a newly-created X window. This is the default.
- Draw in monochrome.
- -install | -noinstall
- Turn on/off installing colormap.
- -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.
- -window-id id
- Draw on an already existing X window.
- -pattern " pattern "
- Specify juggling pattern in annotated site-swap
notation. In site-swap notation, the "height" of each
throw is given. E.g., "3" is the height needed to juggle a
3-Cascade. Note that these sequences need to be chosen carefully, to avoid
Annotations indicate relative hand movements or tricks:
||Inside throw (default)
||Cross Throw and Catch
- -pattern "[ pattern ]"
- Specify juggling pattern in annotated Adam notation.
Adam notation is a little harder to visualize. Each integer n
represents a cyclic permutation of (0...n). The equivalent
site-swap value is determined by calculating how many of the
permutations it takes to get back to the identity. The largest number used
is the same as the number of objects in the pattern. The advantage of Adam
notation is that these sequences do not need to be chosen carefully, since
all possible sequences are juggle-able. Annotations are the same as in
For example, both of these describe a 3-Shower:
- -pattern "+5 1"
- -pattern "[+3 1]"
For further examples, see the portfolio list in the source code.
- -tail number
- Minimum Trail Length. 0 - 100. Default: 1. Objects may
override this, for example flaming torches always leave a trail.
- Turn on/off real-time juggling. Deprecated. There
should be no need to turn off real-time juggling, even on slow systems.
Adjust speed using -count above.
- Turn on/off pattern descriptions.
- Turn on/off Balls.
- Turn on/off Clubs.
- Turn on/off Flaming Torches.
- Turn on/off Knives.
- Turn on/off Rings.
- Turn on/off Bowling Balls.
- -count number
- Speed. 50 - 1000. Default: 200. This determines the
expected time interval between a throw and the next catch, in
- -cycles number
- Performance Length. 50 - 1000. Default: 1000. Setting this
smaller will force the juggler to switch patterns (and objects) more
- -delay delay
- Additional delay between frames, in microseconds. Default:
10000. Deprecated. Adjust speed using -count.
- -ncolors ncolors
- Maximum number of colors to use. Default: 32.
- 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.
