A cellular automaton that is really a two-dimensional Turing machine:
as the heads ("ants") walk along the screen, they change pixel values
in their path. Then, as they pass over changed pixels, their behavior
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a
visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
-window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default.
-root Draw on the root window.
-sharpturns | -no-sharpturns
Whether to do sharp turns.
-truchet | -no-truchet
Whether to use truchet lines.
-eyes | -no-eyes
Whether to draw eyes on the ants.
