        substrate - Grow crystal-like lines on a computational substrate


        substrate  [-display  host:display.screen]  [-foreground color] [-back‐
        ground  color]  [-wireframe]  [-max-cycles  cyclecount]  [-growth-delay
        delayms]     [-initial-cracks    numinitial]    [-max-cracks    nummax]
        [-sand-grains numgrains] [-circle-percent circlepercent]


        Lines like crystals grow on a computational substrate.  A  simple  per‐
        pendicular growth rule creates intricate city-like structures.  Option‐
        ally, cracks may also be circular, producing a cityscape more  familiar
        to places for which city planning is a distant, theoretical concern.


        substrate accepts the following options:
        -wireframe (Default: False)
                Don’t  draw  sand-painting  colored  effects, only make a wire‐
        -max-cycles cyclecount (Default: 10000)
                Maximum number of growth cycles before restarting.  The  higher
                this is, the more complex the art.
        -growth-delay delayms (Default: 18000)
                Delay  in  ms  between  growth cycles.  More delay, slower (but
                smoother and less CPU intensive) art.
        -initial-cracks numinitial (Default: 3)
                Initial number of cracks in the substrate
        -max-cracks nummax (Default: 100)
                Maximum number of cracks in the substrate at a single time
        -sand-grains numgrains (Default: 64)
                Number of sand grains dropped  during  coloring.   More  grains
                cause a denser colour but use more cpu power.
        -circle-percent circlepercent (Default: 0)
                The percentage of the cracks will be circular.


        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.
