glsnake - OpenGL enhanced Rubik's Snake cyclewaster.


glsnake [-display host:display.screen] [-window] [-root] [-visual visual] [-delay microseconds] [-fps] [-wireframe] [-altcolour] [-angvel angular] [-explode distance] [-statictime milliseconds] [-yangvel angle] [-zangvel angle]


glsnake is an imitation of Rubiks´ Snake, using OpenGL.


glsnake accepts the following options: -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -install 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 visual. -fps Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count. -wireframe Display the snake in wireframe mode, rather than the default solid mode. -altcolour Use the alternate colour scheme for the snake. Shape identification using colour will be disabled. -angvel angular Change the speed at which the snake morphs to a new shape. -explode distance Change the distance between the nodes of a snake. -statictime milliseconds Change the time between morphs. -yangvel angle Change the angle of rotation around the Y axis per frame. -zangvel angle Change the angle of rotation around the Z axis per frame.


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.


/usr/share/glsnake/*.glsnake This XScreenSaver will attempt to read model files installed with the interactive glsnake.

The snake will happily intersect itself while morphing (this is not a bug). The rotation/camera position sucks.
