       cloudlife - a cellular automaton based on Conway's Life

       cloudlife  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-back‐
       ground color] [-window] [-root]	[-mono]	 [-install]  [-visual  visual]
       [-ncolors  integer]  [-cycle-delay  microseconds]  [-cycle-colors inte‐
       ger][-cell-size integer] [-initial-density integer] [-max-age integer]


       The cloudlife program draws a  cellular	automaton  based  on  Conway's
       Life, except that cells have a maximum age, and only one pixel per cell
       is drawn every tick.

       cloudlife 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 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

       -cycle-delay integer
	       Time in microseconds to sleep between ticks.  Default 25000.

       -cycle-colors integer
	       How many ticks should elapse between cycling colors.  0 to dis‐
	       able color cycling.  Default 2.

       -ncolors integer
	       How many colors should be used (if possible).  Default 64.  The
	       colors are chosen randomly.

       -cell-size integer
	       Size of each cell, in powers of 2.  Default 3 (8-pixel cells).

       -initial-density integer
	       Percentage of cells that are alive at start and when the	 field
	       is repopulated.	Default 30.

       -max-age integer
	       Maximum age for a cell.	Default 64.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.

       DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.

	       to  get	the  name of a resource file that overrides the global
	       resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
