Package geomview

Interactive 3D viewing program

http://www.geomview.org/

Geomview is an interactive 3D viewing program for Unix. It lets you view and
manipulate 3D objects: you use the mouse to rotate, translate, zoom in and out,
etc. It can be used as a standalone viewer for static objects or as a display
engine for other programs which produce dynamically changing geometry. It can
display objects described in a variety of file formats. It comes with a wide
selection of example objects, and you can create your own objects too.

General Commands (Section 1)
animate.1gv
Animate is an interactive animation tool specifically designed to be used with Geomview. It provides several simple animation controls such as looping...
anytooff.1gv
Anytooff reads OOGL geometry data (from the given files, if any, otherwise from standard input) and outputs the new polylist (in OFF format) to standard output...
anytoucd.1gv
Anytoucd reads a geom from standard in and outputs the equivalent ucd stream to standard out. Anytoucd calls anytopl(1) before converting to ucd. Full...
bdy.1gv
Bdy is a filter used to find boundary curves in Geomview objects. The program reads a geomview object from standard input and prints the resultant vector object...
bez2mesh.1gv
This manual page documents briefly the bez2mesh command. bez2mesh Dices a BEZ file to a list of MESHes, each diced NxN. If N negative, everts each patch.
clip.1gv
Clip, adapted from Daeron Meyer's ginsu module, allows clipping an OOGL object against planes, spheres, or cylinders from the UNIX command line. Its input can...
geomview.1gv
Geomview is an interactive geometry viewer written at the Geometry Center. It displays the objects in the files given on the command line and allows the user to...
hvectext.1gv
Hvectext generates a Geomview/OOGL vector-text object, of given height or total length (default -s .25). It aligns the given 3-D point (default -at 0 0 0) with...
math2oogl.1gv
This manual page documents briefly the math2oogl command. math2oogl converts Mathematica graphics objects, read from standard input, to OOGL format, written to...
nose.1gv
Nose is a geomview module which tests the geomview picking facility. Nose has no panel of its own. You invoke it by selecting the "Nose" line in the...
offconsol.1gv
offconsol reads an OFF file from standard input and writes an OFF file in which vertices closer than a given precision have been combined. The default precision...
oogl2rib.1gv
This manual page documents briefly the oogl2rib command. oogl2rib Convert OOGL file to RenderMan rib format. Default: read from stdin, write to stdout. Accepts...
oogl2vrml.1gv
This manual page documents briefly the oogl2vrml command. oogl2vrml Convert OOGL file to VRML format. Writes to standard output. Reads from stdin if no file...
polymerge.1gv
Polymerge eliminates redundancies from polyhedral objects in OOGL's OFF format, and writes another OFF object to its standard output. (Optionally it can produce...
togeomview.1gv
togeomview sends a stream of geomview commands, or OOGL-format geometric data, to a cooperating copy of geomview. If geomview is not running, it is...
ucdtooff.1gv
Ucdtooff reads from standard input and outputs the equivalent OFF stream to standard out.
vrml2oogl.1gv
This manual page documents briefly the vrml2oogl command. vrml2oogl Convert VRML file (possibly compressed/gzipped) into an OOGL file. If a handle is given...
Library Functions (Section 3)
anytopl.3gv
AnyToPL() takes any geom as an arguement. It then returns a polylist object which is geometrically identical to the original geom. The transform argument is the...
bdy.3gv
Bdy() is a function which takes a geom as its argument. The geom is then converted to a polylist, which is compressed (See plconsol(3). Bdy() then counts the...
fsaparse.3gv
fsafparse parses a word-acceptor automaton file in the format described by DEAGL ("Data Exchange for Automata and Groups Language") (but see the Bugs section...
geomutil.3gv
geomutil - various geometry utilities (introduction)
lisp.3gv
No description.
plcombine.3gv
PLCombine() combines two polylists into a single polylist and returns the new polylist. If either of the old polylists was NULL, a copy of the other polylist...
plconsol.3gv
PLConsol() is a function which takes a geom, which must be a polylist, as its argument and returns a version of the polylist which has no repeated vertices. Two...
File Formats (Section 5)
discgrp.5gv
This file format applies to a wide variety of groups encountered in topology and geometry. At the beginning of the file is the string DISCGRP, in conformity...
