The hypercube program displays a wireframe projection of a hypercube
which is rotating at user-specified rates around any or all of its four
hypercube 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 colors used to draw the line segments bordering the eight
faces of the cube. Some of the faces have only two of their
border-lines drawn in the specified color, and some have all
The amount that the cube 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.
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.
