geodesic - animates a mesh geodesic sphere.


geodesic [-display host:display.screen] [-visual visual] [-window] [-root] [-mode mode] [-no-wander] [-no-spin] [-fps] [-delay number] [-speed number] [-count number]


Animates a mesh geodesic sphere of increasing and decreasing complexity. A geodesic sphere is an icosohedron whose equilateral faces are sub-divided into non-equilateral triangles to more closely approximate a sphere. The animation shows the equilateral triangles subdivided into four coplanar equilateral triangles; and then inflated outward, causing the sub-triangles to no longer be equilat‐ eral, but to more closely approximate the surface of a sphere.


-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. -mode mesh | solid | stellated | stellated2 | wire Face/edge display style. Default mesh. -wander | -no-wander Whether the object should wander around the screen. -spin | -no-spin Whether the object should spin. -fps | -no-fps Whether to show a frames-per-second display at the bottom of the screen. -delay number Per-frame delay, in microseconds. Default: 30000 (0.03 seconds). -speed number Animation speed. 2.0 means twice as fast, 0.5 means half as fast. -count number Depth (frequency) of the geodesic sphere. Default: 4.


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.
