       fluidballs - the physics of bouncing balls.

       fluidballs  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-visual visual] [-window]
       [-root] [-count number] [-size number] [-gravity number] [-wind number]
       [-elasticity number] [-delay number] [-nonrandom] [-no-shake] [-fps]

       Models  the  physics  of	 bouncing  balls,  or of particles in a gas or
       fluid, depending on the settings. If  "Shake  Box"  is  selected,  then
       every  now  and then, the box will be rotated, changing which direction
       is down (in order to keep the settled balls in motion.)

       -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

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

       -root   Draw on the root window.

       -count number
	       How many balls to display.  Default: 300.

       -size number
	       Maximum size of each ball.  Default: 25.

       -gravity number
	       Coefficient of gravity.	Useful values  are  <  0.1.   Default:

       -wind number
	       Wind.  Useful values are < 0.1.	Default: 0.00.

       -elasticity number
	       Coefficient  of	elasticity.   Useful  values  are  0.2 to 1.0.
	       Default: 0.97.  Lower numbers make less bouncy balls.

       -delay number
	       Per-frame delay, in microseconds.  Default:  10000  (0.01  sec‐

	       Make all balls be the same size.

	       Make the balls be random sizes.	Default.

       -shake | -no-shake
	       Whether	to  shake  the box if the system seems to have settled
	       down.  "Shake" means "change the direction of Down."

       -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.
