Stress-relieving toy based on Rubik's snake

'glsnake' is an imitation of Rubiks' Snake. The snake is made up of 24 triangular prisms (half-cubes) connected on the square faces by a rotational joint. The snake may be rotated and manipulated into a variety of shapes. The program has an interactive mode where you can create your own models, colour highlighting of different model classes, as well as mouse support. 'glsnake' also has been ported to XScreenSaver. The screensaver version is non-interactive, but does attempt to load locally created models made with the interactive toy version.
