saving mode in GeomView
Andrew, The easiest way to save the "state" of geomview is to bring up the "Save" panel (next to last entry in the "MORE PANELS" browser on the main panel). It is initially set up to save the entire world (also known as "g0") in "Commands" format. Just type a filename in the text field after the word "in", and hit return. This will save a geomview command file containing (almost, :-) everything about your current session, including the geometry you have loaded. You can load that file just like a regular data file (either on the command line or via the "load" panel). If you want something more general, i.e. a command file that just sets up the lights and material properties, you can edit the file to suit your needs. The geomview command language is documented in the file GEOMROOT/man/cat5/geomview.5, where GEOMROOT is the directory where you unpacked the geomview distribution. By the way, could I come visit you next week? It so happens that I will be leaving here in about an hour to visit several labs in Silicon Valley on a dipolomatic mission to establish stronger connections between the Geometry Center and the rest of the world. I would love to come see what you're doing with geomview and in general what goes on at Xerox PARC. Would this be possible? I have some time available on Thursday if that's convenient; if not I could arrange to come some other day. I will be in email contact till I leave here at about 3pm today (1pm your time). Starting tonight I can be reached at ((555) 555-5555 which is in San Francisco.
