flipflop - draws a grid of 3D squares that change positions


flipflop [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-count number | -free number] [-size number] [-size-x number] [-size-y number] [-spin number] [-mode sticks | tiles] [-delay number] [-wireframe] [-fps] [-texture]


Flipflop draws a grid of 3D colored tiles that change positions with each other.


-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 visual. -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -count number Number of tiles on the board. A value of "0" means "default". The default number of tiles depends on the size of the board and the mode: 95% of total tiles for "tiles" mode and 80% of total sticks for "sticks" mode (e.g. 76 tiles or 64 sticks for a 9x9 board). -free number Number of tiles missing from the board. See -count. -size number Number of tiles on each side of the board. Takes precedence over -size-x and -size-y. Default: 9. -size-x number Width (in tiles) of the board. Default: 9. -size-y number Length (in tiles) of the board. Default: 9. -spin number Angular velocity for the rotation of the board. -mode sticks Draw hopping sticks instead of flipping tiles. -mode tiles Draw flipping tiles. This is the default. -delay number Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 20000 (0.02 seconds.). -fps | -no-fps Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count. -wireframe Only draw outlines. -texture | -no-texture Whether to texture the tiles with a screen grab or an image.


DISPLAY to get the default host and display number. XENVIRONMENT to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
