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.
