SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

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

OPTIONS

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.

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).

ENVIRONMENT

DISPLAY to get the default host and display number.
XENVIRONMENT

X RESOURCES

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