pong - Pong Home Video Game Emulator


pong [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-clock float] [-noise] [-fps]


The pong program simulates an ancient Pong home video game, as well as various artifacts from displaying it on a color TV set.


pong accepts the following options: -window Draw on a newly-created window. This is the default. -root Draw on the root window. -mono If on a color display, pretend we're on a monochrome display. -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. -clock The score of the game will be the current time. -noise float How noisy the video signal should be (between 0.0 and 4.0 or so). -fps Display the current frame rate and CPU load. (-p1 | -p2) mode Set a player to either ai, mouse, tablet, kbleft (for W and S), or kbright (or just kb, for arrow keys).


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.


Notable X resources supported include the following which correspond to standard TV con‐ trols: analogTVTint, analogTVColor, analogTVBrightness, and analogTVContrast. They range from 0 to 100, except for tint which is an angle between -180 and +180.
