OPTIONS

       squiral 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.

       -fill percent
               Specify the percent (0-100) of the screen which must be  filled
               before the screen is cleared.  60-80 percent are good values.

       -count number
               The number of squiralies.  By default, the screen width divided
               by 32.

       -delay usec
               The wait between steps.  The default is 1000.

       -disorder fraction
               The fraction of the time a squiraly will choose  a  new  direc-
               tion.  The default is 0.005.

       -handedness fraction
               The  fraction of the time a squiraly will choose to enter left-
               handed mode.  0.0 means exclusively right-handed behavior,  0.5
               (the  default)  is a balance between the two, and 1.0 is exclu-
               sively left-handed behaviour.
