        Draws a stick-man juggling various collections of objects.


        -display host:display.screen
               X11 display to use.  Overrides DISPLAY environment variable.
        -root  Draw on the root window.
               Draw on a newly-created X window.  This is the default.
        -mono  Draw in monochrome.
        -install  |  -noinstall
               Turn on/off installing colormap.
        -visual visual
               Specify which visual to use.  Legal values are  the  name  of  a
               visual  class,  or  the id number (decimal or hex) of a specific
        -window-id id
               Draw on an already existing X window.
        -pattern "pattern"
               Specify juggling pattern in annotated  site-swap  notation.   In
               site-swap  notation, the "height" of each throw is given.  E.g.,
               "3" is the height needed to juggle a 3-Cascade.  Note that these
               sequences need to be chosen carefully, to avoid collisions.
               Annotations indicate relative hand movements or tricks:
               -   Inside throw (default)
               +   Outside throw
               =   Cross Throw
               &   Cross Catch
               x   Cross Throw and Catch
               _   Bounce
        -pattern "[pattern]"
               Specify juggling pattern in annotated Adam notation.  Adam nota‐
               tion is a little harder to visualize.  Each integer n represents
               a cyclic permutation of (0...n).  The equivalent site-swap value
               is determined by calculating how many  of  the  permutations  it
               takes  to  get back to the identity.  The largest number used is
               the same as the number of objects in the pattern.  The advantage
               of  Adam notation is that these sequences do not need to be cho‐
               sen carefully, since all  possible  sequences  are  juggle-able.
               Annotations are the same as in site-swap notation.
               For example, both of these describe a 3-Shower:
               -pattern "+5 1"
               -pattern "[+3 1]"
               For further examples, see the portfolio list in the source code.
        -tail number
               Minimum Trail Length.  0 - 100.  Default: 1.  Objects may  over‐
               ride this, for example flaming torches always leave a trail.
        -real | -no-real
               Turn on/off real-time juggling.  Deprecated.  There should be no
               need to turn off  real-time  juggling,  even  on  slow  systems.
               Adjust speed using -count above.
        -describe | -no-describe
               Turn on/off pattern descriptions.
        -balls | -no-balls
               Turn on/off Balls.
        -clubs | -no-clubs
               Turn on/off Clubs.
        -torches | -no-torches
               Turn on/off Flaming Torches.
        -knives | -no-knives
               Turn on/off Knives.
        -rings | -no-rings
               Turn on/off Rings.
        -bballs | -no-bballs
               Turn on/off Bowling Balls.
        -count number
               Speed.  50  - 1000.  Default: 200.  This determines the expected
               time interval between a throw and the next catch,  in  millisec‐
        -cycles number
               Performance  Length.  50  -  1000.  Default: 1000.  Setting this
               smaller will force the juggler to switch patterns (and  objects)
               more often.
        -delay delay
               Additional  delay  between  frames,  in  microseconds.  Default:
               10000.  Deprecated.  Adjust speed using -count.
        -ncolors ncolors
               Maximum number of colors to use.  Default: 32.

               resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.
