This is a port of the screen saver glmatrix from the xscreensaver
package by Jamie Zawinski.

The porting was done by Shadow of IRIS, aka. Steen Lund Nielsen.

A 3D graphics card

Copy GLMatrix aswell as Matrix3_half2.png to the same directory.
For example 'WBStartup'.

The screen saver runs as a commodity. The preference gui can be
accessed through commodity exchange or by running the program

The GUI is rather simple:
Timeout: The period in seconds it waits before blanking the

Density: Adjusts how many columns of symbols are dropped from
the top down.

Speed: Adjusts the animation speed.

Encoding: Selects different symbols.

Screen Mode: Select your prefered screen mode.

Fog: Enable/Disable distance cueing.

Wave: Enable/Disable waving of symbols.

Rotate: Enable/Disable camera rotation.

Invert alpha: Inverts the alpha channel of the texture. Enable
this if you are using a B/CVisionPPC or CV3D. I do not know if
this is still true for the OS4 version.


1.0 (20-05-2005)
