       This program animates a puzzle known as Cube 21 or Square-1.  Its moves
       are chosen randomly.

       Cube  21 is a Rubik-like puzzle invented in 1992.  Its specialities are
       that it can change its shape and even the number of possible moves.  It
       can have more than 200 different shapes and the total number of config‐
       urations (assuming colors) is several tens of billions.

       cube21 accepts the following options:

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

	       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

       -delay microseconds
	       How long to pause between frames.  Default is  20000,  or  0.02

	       Use texture maps.  This is the default.

	       Use solid colors.

       -mono   Disable both texture maps and colors.

	       Only draw outlines.  Outlines of all pieces, not only the whole
	       object, are drawn.

       -spin   Spin the whole object around X, Y and  Z	 axes.	 This  is  the

	       Do not spin, showing the same three faces all the time.

       -wander Move the object around the screen.  This is the default.

	       Keep the object centered on the screen.

	       Shuffle the puzzle randomly at startup.	This is the default.

	       Do not shuffle at startup, begin at the shape of cube.

       -spinspeed number
	       The relative speed of spinning.	Default is 1.0.

       -rotspeed number
	       The relative speed of the moves.	 Default is 3.0.  Setting to ≤
	       0.0 makes the object stay at one configuration.

       -wanderspeed number
	       The relative speed of wandering around the screen.  Default  is

       -wait number
	       How long to stay at ending position after each move.  The mean‐
	       ing of the argument is again relative.  Default is 40.0.

       -cubesize number
	       Size of the object.  Value of 3.0 fills roughly all the	screen
	       (its height).  Default is 0.7.

       -colormode argument
	       How  many  and which colors should the object have.  The colors
	       are put on the piece faces so that the puzzle is solvable.  The
	       inner faces are not influenced.

	       se or silver
		       Simulate	 the  "Silver  Edition" - white and one random

	       2 or two
		       Two random colors.

	       ce or classic
		       Simulate the "Classic Edition" - white, yellow, orange,
		       red, green and blue.

	       6 or six
		       Six random colors.

	       1 or random or rnd
		       One random color.

	       Anything else
		       All faces white.

       -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

       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.
