OpenGL or Mesa (used Mesa 3.4.2) with glut (used glut 3.7),
almost any Unix/X11 combination (used Linux 2.4.8 / XFree86 4.1.0),
and, of course, a computer :)
First you must unpack the tarball. You may copy it to /tmp
tar zxvf 3dfile-XXX.tar.gz, or if your tar can't uncompress
gunzip 3dfile-XXX.tar.gz tar xvf 3dfile-XXX.tar Now, you can cd to 3dfile.
You need to compile it to actually use it.
The operation is just as easy as a plane-crash. Just type:
optional: make install or make install-strip as root
or, if you have problems: make -f Makefile.orig
If something's wrong, please check the Makefile for
the libs and directories.
Please read the README file from the source
distribution. It explains a lot more things than here.
Also, you're encouraged
to read the rest of files, especially the sources and the ChangeLog. It
may be very useful, at least to me, if you have some ideas, suggestions,
or whatever (like ports to other OSes).
If you intend to link this page, you're free to do it,
but please drop me a line, so I could make eventually a link to your page too.
You may use it exactly as you want. You may use it for fun,
to work better (I don't thing so), you may throw it away or you may modify
and enhance it to make it more useful. But don't blame me if this 3dfile
will damage your computer, your eyes, your dog or your life style.
In other words: 3dfile is free software, you can redistribute it and/or
modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published
by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License,
or (at your option) any later version.
I'm just hardly waiting for some reaction.
If you have some questions, don't hesitate to
