NAME

SYNOPSIS

       flyingtoasters  [-display  host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-win-
       dow]  [-root]  [-delay  number]  [-speed  number]  [-ntoasters  number]
       [-nslices number] [-no-texture] [-wireframe] [-fps]


DESCRIPTION

       Draws a squadron of shiny 3D space-age jet-powered flying toasters, and
       associated toast, flying across your screen.


OPTIONS

       -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 Draw on a newly-created window.  This is the default.

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -delay number
               Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default:  30000  (0.03  sec-
               onds.).

       -speed number
               How fast the toasters fly.  Larger for faster.  Default: 1.0.

       -ntoasters number
               How many toasters to draw.  Default 20.

       -nslices number
               How many slices of toast to draw.  Default 25.

       -no-texture
               Turn off texture mapping (for slow machines.)

       -wireframe
               Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -fps | -no-fps
               Whether  to  show  a frames-per-second display at the bottom of
               the screen.


ENVIRONMENT

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

       XENVIRONMENT
               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.
