       dow]  [-root]  [-delay  number]	[-speed	 number]  [-ntoasters  number]
       [-nslices number] [-no-texture] [-wireframe] [-fps]

       Draws a squadron of shiny 3D space-age jet-powered flying toasters, and
       associated toast, flying across your screen.

       -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.

       -delay number

       -speed number
	       How fast the toasters fly.  Larger for faster.  Default: 1.0.

       -ntoasters number
	       How many toasters to draw.  Default 20.

       -nslices number
	       How many slices of toast to draw.  Default 25.

	       Turn off texture mapping (for slow machines.)

	       Render in wireframe instead of solid.

       -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

       The original After Dark flying toasters, with the fluffy	 white	wings,
       were a trademark of Berkeley Systems.  Berkeley Systems ceased to exist
       some time in 1998, having been gobbled up by Sierra  Online,  who  were
       subsequently  gobbled  up by Flipside and/or Vivendi (it's hard to tell
       exactly what happened when.)

       I doubt anyone even cares any more, but	if  they  do,  hopefully  this
       homage,	with  the  space-age 3D jet-plane toasters, will be considered
       different enough that whoever still owns the trademark to  the  fluffy-
       winged 2D bitmapped toasters won't get all huffy at us.
