We have a public domain visualization package called "Geomview". It was written for the purpose of interactively viewing geometry. In addition to providing interactive control over a world of objects via the mouse and keyboard, geomview has an interpreted language of commands for controlling almost every aspect of its display. It can execute files containing statements in this language, and it can communicate with other programs using this language. The other programs often take the form of external modules which extend the capabilities of Geomview. Although Geomview is object oriented in many ways, it is implemented in C, not C++. There are probably several reasons for this. Many people here and from around the world believe that C++ is not truly object oriented. A major problem with writing programs in C++ is that there is no final word on the official specification for the language yet. This makes porting applications written in C++ very difficult. Geomview currently runs on the SGI and NeXT platforms. There is also an X-window version being worked on and there is already a sun X11 beta binary available. If this sounds like something of interest to you feel free to grab a copy by ftping it from: geom.umn.edu login = anonymous pass = your-email binary mode (bin): /pub/geomview/geomview-sgi.tar.Z /pub/geomview/geomview-next.tar.Z /pub/geomview/geomview-sun.x11-beta.tar.Z also there is a postscript manual (120+ pages): /pub/geomview/geomview/pieces/manual.tar.Z
