Hanggliders fly in the background of the X screen. You can build and run
this program if you have C compiler, include files like Xlib.h, and X is
I recommend 8bpp or more.

- Designed glider, like XC or Laminar, to be available.
- Avoid collision in the air.
- Add GLIDING_AGGRESSIVE mode (like loop, spiral).
- Make it faster.
- Paragliders to be available.
- Fire balloons to be available.
- Use OpenGL library (Mesa).
For me, I like to run the program with options
"-pilot 4 -vario -frequency 0.2",
without the option '-noflicker' or '-useclip'. It is much faster!
