SYNOPSIS

       glknots   [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual]  [-window]
       [-root] [-delay number]  [-speed  float]  [-segments  int]  [-thickness
       float] [-duration seconds] [-no-wander] [-spin XYZ] [-wireframe] [-fps]


DESCRIPTION

       Generates some twisting 3d knot patterns.  Spins ’em around.


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
               Larger numbers mean run faster.  Default: 1.0.

       -segments number
               Number  of segments in each path.  Default 800.  Larger numbers
               make the curves smoother, at the expense of  a  higher  polygon
               count.

       -thickness float
               How thick the tubes should be.  Default 0.3.

       -duration seconds
               How long to leave each knot up.  Default 5 seconds.

       -wander | -no-wander
               Whether the cubes should wander around the screen.

       -spin [XYZ] | -no-spin
               Which axes, if any, to spin around on.

       -wireframe | -no-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.
