NAME

       hypercube - 2d projection of a 4d object


SYNOPSIS

       hypercube  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-back-
       ground color] [-color[0-7] color] [-xy float] [-xz float]  [-yz  float]
       [-xw  float]  [-yw  float] [-zw float] [-observer-z int] [-delay usecs]
       [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual]


DESCRIPTION

       The hypercube program displays a wireframe projection  of  a  hypercube
       which is rotating at user-specified rates around any or all of its four
       axes.


OPTIONS

       hypercube accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -mono   If on a color display, pretend we’re on a monochrome display.

       -install
               Install a private colormap for the window.

       -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.

       -delay microseconds
               How much of a delay should be introduced between steps  of  the
               animation.  Default 100000, or about 1/10th second.

       -observer-z int
               How  far  away the observer is from the center of the cube (the
               cube is one unit per side.)  Default 5.

       -color0 color

       -color1 color

       -color2 color

       -color3 color

       -color4 color

       -color5 color

       -color6 color

       -color7 color
               The colors used to draw the line segments bordering  the  eight
               faces  of  the  cube.  Some of the faces have only two of their
               border-lines drawn in the specified color, and  some  have  all
               four.

       -xw float

       -xy float

       -xz float

       -yw float

       -yz float

       -zw float
               The amount that the cube should be rotated around the specified
               axis at each frame of  the  animation,  expressed  in  radians.
               These  should  be  small  floating-point values (less than 0.05
               works best.)  Default: xy=0.01, xz=0.005, yw=0.01.


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.
