The hyperball program displays a wireframe projection of a hyperball
which is rotating at user-specified rates around any or all of its four
hyperball 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 a private colormap for the window.
Specify which visual to use. Legal values are the name of a
visual class, or the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
How much of a delay should be introduced between steps of the
animation. Default 100000, or about 1/10th second.
How far away the observer is from the center of the cube (the
cube is one unit per side.) Default 5.
The amount that the ball should be rotated around the specified
axis at each frame of the animation, expressed in radians.
These should be small floating-point values (less than 0.05
works best.) Default: xy=0.01, xz=0.005, yw=0.01.
