WORMS(6) BSD Reference Manual WORMS(6)
worms - animate worms on a display terminal
worms [-ft] [-d delay] [-l length] [-n number]
A UNIX version of the DEC-2136 program "worms". The options are as follows: -d delay Specifies a delay, in milliseconds, between each update. This is useful for fast terminals. Reasonable values are around 20-200. The default is based on the terminal speed. If the terminal is 9600 baud or slower no delay is used. Otherwise, the delay is computed via the following formula: delay = speed / 9600 - 1. -f Makes a "field" for the worm(s) to eat. -l length Specifies a length for each worm; the default is 16. -n number Specifies the number of worms; the default is 3. -t Makes each worm leave a trail behind it.
The lower-right-hand character position will not be updated properly on a terminal that wraps at the right margin. MirOS BSD #10-current May 31, 1993 1
