Xmgf has a viewing window and controls over the orientation and focal point of a viewing camera. Xmgf written in motif is completely interactive and buttons exist for most command line options. Xmgf was written to complement xgf and to add 3D viewing properties. Xmgf also includes some of the xgf 2D viewing primitives but allows them to be projected onto a plane in the third dimension such that the observer can move around and observe the sets from a new perspective. Xmgf has already been used by for 3D surface representation,Model representation, 3D line detection data representation, view-sphere data representation and depth data representation. Xmgf Auto-scales images,can have the viewing parameters stored in a file produce Xfig and Postscript and MIF output as well as RAYSHADE data files and PGM, PBM and XBM SunRaster and GIF image outputs. Xmgf has Interactive file selection menus to allow greater flexibility in finding files. Xmgf can read other CAD or object file formats via filters. current formats include NFF/OBJ/OFF/RAY/SLA/DXF/MINICAD/IGRIP. These filters do not cover all the features available but they are a start. You should read the README and MAKEBUGS in the tar file to find out what is needed to be set before building. New Features: Xmgf 2.3 html online help Configure script Message Box bug fix Depth Cue Patch Work Translation step on mouse movement now an argument (default 5) Xmgf 2.3.1 Resize Code Cracked for Motif1.2.X Icon Panel removal from command line Xmgf -n fixed Stereo and Ortho views fixed for Motif1.2.X Xmgf 2.3.2 (Sorry such a quick release but many build problems with new Configure) Configure problems -O -O2 problems CDEBUGFLAS = -O by default no more GUI.c Scale widget bug args[n] problem Checked cc build forgot to do before release Xmgf 2.3.2.Beta (Sorry last should have been an alpha release) Pixmaps.c char * unsigned char * problem for SGI Polygon prototype on DrawDot,DrawCircle,etc.. removed Xmgf 2.3.3.Alpha Adrian Hilton desired that autocommand scripts didn't use such memory. XmgfMalloc and XmgfFree introducted to remove problems of Malloc MALLOCDEBUG also used for people wanting to trace malloc problems. Xmgf 2.4 Resource minimization. A few bug fixes and now 1000 limit anymore on object translation.
