    NAME

    munch - munching squares screen hack
     
    

    SYNOPSIS

    munch [-display host:display.screen] [-foreground color] [-background color] [-window] [-root] [-mono] [-install] [-visual visual] [-delay seconds] [-xor] [-noxor] [-shift] [-noshift] [-logminwidth minimum width]  

    DESCRIPTION

    The munch program preforms the munching squares hack until killed. It picks square size, position, and gravity randomly; configurable options are listed below.

    The munching squares hack cosists of drawing Y = X XOR T for a range of X and T over and over until all the possible combinations of X and T have come up. It was reportedly discovered by Jackson Wright in 1962 and took 5 instructions of PDP-6 code.  

    OPTIONS

    munch 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.
    -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 visual.
    -delay seconds
    How long to wait before starting over. Default 5 seconds.
    -xor
    Use the XOR drawing function. (Default.)
    -no-xor
    Don't use the XOR drawing function.
    -shift
    Start drawing the square at weird starting points. (Default.)
    -no-shift
    Don't shift and start drawing the square at weird starting points.
    -logminwidth minimum-width
    The logarithm (base 2) of the minimum with of a square (must be a power of 2, or some parts of the square aren't.)
     

    ENVIRONMENT

    DISPLAY
    to get the default host and display number.
    XENVIRONMENT
    to get the name of a resource file that overrides the global resources stored in the RESOURCE_MANAGER property.

    HISTORY

    Quoted from HAKMEM, for historical interest. As that document says, "Unless otherwise stated, all computer programs are in PDP-6/10 assembly language."
    ITEM 146: MUNCHING SQUARES
    Another simple display program. It is thought that this was discovered by Jackson Wright on the RLE PDP-1 circa 1962.

        DATAI 2
        ADDB 1,2
        ROTC 2,-22
        XOR 1,2
        JRST .-4
    
    

    2=X, 3=Y. Try things like 1001002 in data switches. This also does interesting things with operations other than XOR, and rotations other than -22. (Try IOR; AND; TSC; FADR; FDV(!); ROT -14, -9, -20, ...)
    ITEM 147 (Schroeppel):
    Munching squares is just views of the graph Y = X XOR T for consecutive values of T = time.
    ITEM 148 (Cohen, Beeler):
    A modification to munching squares which reveals them in frozen states through opening and closing curtains: insert FADR 2,1 before the XOR. Try data switches =

        4000,,4    1000,,2002    2000,,4    0,,1002
    
    

    (Notation: <left half>,,<right half>)

    Also try the FADR after the XOR, switches = 1001,,1.
