       cubicgrid - rotating 3D lattice seen from inside

       cubicgrid  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual  visual] [-window]
       [-root] [-install] [-delay microseconds] [-mono] [-speed number] [-zoom
       number] [-ticks number] [-bigdots] [-fps]

       This  program  shows  the  view	of an observer located inside a set of
       points arranged to a 3D lattice.	 As the lattice rotates, various view-
       throughs appear and evolve.  A simple idea with interesting results.

       cubicgrid 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

       -mono   Draw in black and white.	 If not used, a fixed all-color scheme
	       is chosen.

       -speed number
	       The  maximum  speed of the rotation.  The actual speed and axis
	       change smoothly for better effect.  0.5 - 10.  The  default  is

       -zoom number
	       Size  of	 the  lattice.	Ideally it should fill all the screen,
	       but one may find other values also interesting.	5 -  50.   The
	       default of 20 should do for common screen aspect ratios.

       -ticks number
	       The  count  of  points  drawn along every axis.	10 - 100.  The
	       default is 30.

	       Draw the points twice as big.

       -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.
