       The  pong program simulates an ancient Pong home video game, as well as
       various artifacts from displaying it on a color TV set.


       pong 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 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

       -clock  The score of the game will be the current time.

       -noise float
               How noisy the video signal should be (between 0.0  and  4.0  or

       -fps    Display the current frame rate and CPU load.


       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.


       Notable X resources supported include the following which correspond to
       standard  TV controls: analogTVTint, analogTVColor, analogTVBrightness,
       and analogTVContrast.  They range from 0 to 100, except for tint  which
       is an angle between -180 and +180.
