   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 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

   -fps    Display the current frame rate, CPU load, and polygon count.

           Display the snake in wireframe mode, rather  than  the  default
           solid mode.

           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.

           to get the name of a resource file that  overrides  the  global
           resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.


          This  XScreenSaver  will  attempt  to read model files installed
          with the interactive glsnake.

   The rotation/camera position sucks.
