out of memory?
Yes, the mythical sphere object, although completely undocumented, does indeed exist. File format is easy: keyword "SPHERE", radius, center. Below is a unit sphere centered at the origin (the file /u/gcg/ngrap/data/geom/unit.sphere): SPHERE 1 0 0 0 Note that spheres are a subclass of Bezier patches. Beziers are subdivided into meshes when drawn. You definitely want to set a very coarse dicing level. The SGI default dicing level is 10, I'm not sure about the Suns. If you put the following line into your .geomview file, spheres will be drawn as octahedrons (2 is the smallest possible dicing setting): (dice allgeoms 2) On the file size front, SPHEREs instead of raw OFF objects will cut down ASCII datafile size. In general, you could consider making more sophisticated geomview/OOGL files which use filename or handle references for elements like cylinders/sticks, spheres/balls, or whatever else you need. Then you can easily reinstantiate geometry of appropriate complexity on the fly. If the documentation of this is too cryptic I can send you some examples. I don't know anything about the Sun version, so can't tell you what's up with the memory problems. 2MB certainly doesn't sound unreasonable... Tamara
