GETTING STARTED
---------------

This README file exists only to provide you a brief roadmap to the
contents of the BRL-CAD distribution.

Some platforms have additional platform-specific documentation that
should be consulted after reading this file:

  doc/README.AIX        -- IBM's Advanced Interactive eXecutive OS
  doc/README.BSD        -- FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, etc.
  doc/README.IRIX       -- SGI IRIX and IRIX64
  doc/README.Linux      -- Various Linux distributions
  doc/README.MacOSX     -- Apple Mac OS X
  doc/README.Solaris    -- Oracle Solaris, OpenIndiana (Illumos), etc.
  doc/README.Windows    -- Microsoft Windows

The information on how to install and operate the software, to become
involved with the development of the package, or to run the benchmark
performance test suite have each become sufficiently large that their
details are covered in more detail in standalone documents.  For more
details on what BRL-CAD provides, see the documentation provided on
the website at http://brlcad.org/.

Information relevant to those interested in the source code is
contained in the HACKING and COPYING files.  See doc/benchmark.tr file
for benchmark suite information.  There is a variety of other
documentation and information also available in the doc/ directory.

Please note that this distribution package does not include the
various military-specific model analysis tools such as MUVES, GIFT,
SAR, SLAVE, VAST, etc., nor does it include any military geometry
databases.  If you desire to have access to this material, please
contact one of the BRL-CAD developers.


COMPILE AND INSTALL
-------------------

In order to compile and install BRL-CAD from a source distribution,
the CMake ( http://www.cmake.org ) configuration tool is requird.

The following steps should result in a successful install:

  tar -xvzf brlcad-VERSION.tar.gz
  mkdir brlcad-VERSION/build
  cd brlcad-VERSION/build
  cmake .. -DBRLCAD_ENABLE_STRICT=OFF -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
  make -j4
  make install

See the INSTALL file for explanation of the various configuration
options available when building BRL-CAD.

Once the build completes and assuming you have proper filesystem
permissions, you should be able to begin the installation by running
the "make install" .  By default, the package is configured to install
entirely into /usr/brlcad/.

You will need to add /usr/brlcad/bin to your path (or whatever path the
variable CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX was set to during configure) in order for
the BRL-CAD binaries to be in your path.


BENCHMARK
---------

After the build successfully completes, you will be able to verify
basic functionality by running the BRL-CAD Benchmark.  Running the
benchmark suite is integrated into the build system such that any time
after running CMake (in the cmake gui, configure and generate must both
be performed) you may run:

  make benchmark

If the build is successful, you will see "CORRECT" numbers and a
performance summary at the end.  The "vgr" line effectively shows you
approximately how much faster your machine is to a VAX 11/780.  After
installing BRL-CAD, you may run the 'benchmark' tool as well to run
the BRL-CAD Benchmark.

See the paper in doc/benchmark.tr for information on analyzing and
comparing the results of the benchmark tests in more detail.


COMMUNICATION
-------------

There are various BRL-CAD mailing lists available including three
developer-oriented lists, a user list, and a read-only news
announcement list:

BACKGROUND INFORMATION
----------------------

BRL-CAD is the primary tri-service solid modeling CAD system used by
the U.S. military to model weapons systems for vulnerability and
lethality analyses.  The solid modeling system is frequently used in a
wide range of military and industrial application including in the
design and analysis of vehicles, mechanical parts, and architecture.
The package has also been used in radiation dose planning, medical
visualization, computer graphics education, CSG concepts and modeling
education, and system performance benchmark testing among other
purposes.

Actively developed since 1979, BRL-CAD is a collection of more than
400 tools, utilities, and applications comprising more than a million
lines of source code.  BRL-CAD supports a great variety of geometric
representations including an extensive set of traditional CSG
primitive implicit solids such as boxes, ellipsoids, cones, and tori,
as well as explicit solids made from closed collections of Uniform
B-Spline Surfaces, Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline (NURBS) surfaces,
n-Manifold Geometry (NMG), and purely faceted mesh geometry.  All
geometric objects may be combined using boolean set-theoretic CSG
operations including union, intersection, and difference.

BRL-CAD has been under active development for more than 20 years with
a portability heritage that includes systems such as a DEC VAX-11/780
running 4.3 BSD; DECStations running ULTRIX; Silicon Graphics 3030, 4D
"IRIS", O2, Onyx, and Origin systems running various versions of IRIX;
Sun Microsystems Sun-3 and Sun-4 Sparcs running SunOS; the Cray 1,
Cray X-MP, Cray Y-MP, and Cray 2 running UNICOS; DEC Alpha AXP running
OSF/1; Apple Macintosh II running A/UX; iPSC/860 Hypercube running
NX/2; the Alliant FX/8, FX/80, and FX/2800; Gould/Encore SEL PowerNode
6000/9000 and NP1; NeXT workstations; IBM RS/6000; HPPA 9000/700
running HPUX; Ardent/Stardent; Encore Multi-Max; and much much more.
BRL-CAD's extensive portability of course also includes a plethora of
common desktop and server versions of BSD, IRIX, Solaris, Mac OS X,
Linux, and Windows.

The BRL-CAD package is intentionally designed to be extensively
cross-platform and is actively developed on and maintained for many
common operating system environments including for BSD, IRIX, Linux,
Solaris, Mac OS X, and Windows among others.  The entire package is
distributed in binary and source code form as free open source
software (FOSS), provided under Open Source Initiative (OSI) approved
license terms.  BRL-CAD was released as open source in December 2004.
See the COPYING file for more details.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    --- 2007-10-24  Release 7.10.4                                     ---
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    A major productivity change introduced in this release is
    tab-completion in MGED.  John Anderson's addition of tab-completion to
    MGED allows modelers to have command and object names automatically
    completed when they press the tab key when operating on the MGED
    command line.  If there are multiple matches, the user is presented
    with the list of those possible matches, similar to what one might see
    in a UNIX shell.
    
    After much debate and demand, this minor release marks a rather
    significant change in default behaviors for RT and MGED.  The
    ray-tracers that utilize a framebuffer interface now all create
    lingering windows by default instead of transient windows.  One of the
    main impacts of this change is that users should no longer need to
    specify the linger option when ray-tracing to a window via the -F
    framebuffer option nor do they need to set the FB_FILE environment
    variable in order to get the window to remain displayed.
    Additionally, the default MGED preference setting for Z clipping is
    now disabled in order to reduce confusion with clipped geometry.

    In order to resolve an integration issue with the MUVES-S2
    vulnerability analysis code, this special release of BRL-CAD was put
    together providing updated tclscripts that work correctly when
    embedded into MUVES-S2.  This release also facilitates BRL-CAD's

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Continuing with the impressive ADRT tool suite being provided by
    Justin Shumaker is the addition of the Interactive Shot Selection Tool
    (ISST).  Using ISST, you can spin large facetized models around in
    real-time, slice through them with rays, and examine the geometric
    components along a given path.  The tool will take advantage of
    clusters and SMP hardware similar to RISE, providing a master job
    manager, a slave compute daemon for network distributed processing,
    and a client for interacting with and viewing the models.

  • release-7-0(Mar 19, 2021)

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    --- 2004-11-01  Release 7.0.0                                      ---
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    BRL-CAD's source code has undergone major restructuring with a
    complete replacement of the build system and conversion of the sources
    toward standards compliance.
    
    
    SOURCES REORGANIZED
    
    This release of BRL-CAD marks a new beginning for the project in terms
    of how to sources are organized and how the package is built.  BRL-CAD
    now uses the GNU Build System (autotools) for compilation.  The gen.sh
    and Cakefile-based build system is no more.  In addition to a new
    build system, the directory hierarchy has been reorganized.
    
    Following the GNU-style source code reorganization, BRL-CAD will now
    also follow the major.minor.patch (e.g. 7.0.0) version numbering
    convention.
    
    Source code now primarily lives under the top-level src/ directory,
    external libraries are in the src/other/ directory.  Several of the
    third-party libraries have been updated including tcl/tk and libpng.
    There are top-level documentation files available (such as this file
    and the README) to get users familiar with the project.  Developers
    that would like to get involved with BRL-CAD should refer to the
    HACKING file.
    
    
    ANSI CONFORMANCE
    
    As for the source code itself, full K&R conformance has finally been
    let go with the new preference of being fully compliant with the ANSI
    C standard (INCITS/ISO/IEC 9899-1999).  More efforts continue to
    complete this conversion, maintaining support for as many of the older
    compilers as is reasonably possible, as well as general source code
    clean up.  See the new HACKING file for for more information.
    
    
    NEW FEATURES
    
    The enhancements evident in this release of BRL-CAD include dozens of
    bug fixes and additional documentation across the entire package.
    MGED now sports a new Geometry Browser for traversing through
    geometry, as well as improved support for saving and restoring MGED
    views.  There is now support for importing from Unigraphics and
    Pro-Engineer with the ug-g and proe-brl converters.  There is also a
    g-nff converter for exporting to the NFF file format.  There is
    experimental initial support for a new super ellipsoid primitive type
    for advanced curvature shapes.  There are a few new procedural
    database generators including one for creating geometry of an image as
    well as generic vegetation.
    
    
    WINDOWS SUPPORT
    
    This release marks the first release with initial support for the
    Windows operating system platform.  All of the core BRL-CAD libraries
    as well as several tools (including MGED, RT, NIRT, ASC2G, and more)
    have completed the conversion.  While not yet a holistic port, all of
    the libraries and the core utilities have been ported and the rest will
    soon follow.

    --- 2004-12-21  Release 7.0.1                                      ---
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    While with the new release numbering scheme it will be rare to see a
    release with an odd minor patch number, in many ways this is a major
    BRL-CAD release with the package entering the realm of Open Source
    software.  Likewise, the project moves a new public website as well as
    adopts a SourceForge project site.  With the migration of the project
    to SourceForge, new forums, mailing lists, bug tracking, feature
    requests, support mechanisms, task management, and news announcement
    channels all become instantly available.
    
    OPEN SOURCE
    
    This marks the first release of BRL-CAD as Open Source software.  It
    has taken several years and much hard work by many people to actually
    make this happen.  Special thanks goes out to the U.S. Army Research
    Laboratory for giving back to the community by allowing BRL-CAD to be
    released as Open Source software under the Open Source Initiative
    (OSI) approved NASA Open Source Agreement (NOSA).  The "release"
    solely exists in CVS -- binary and source distributions will remain
    unprepared.
    
    The majority of BRL-CAD is covered by the GNU General Public License.
    The BRL-CAD libraries (src/lib*) are all provided under the GNU Lesser
    General Public License.  The documentation is provided under the terms
    of the GNU Free Documentation License.  The build infrastructure and
    supporting scripts are covered by the Berkeley Software Distribution
    license or are in the public domain.  Given the vast size, complexity,
    and varied usage needs of BRL-CAD's source code and supporting data,
    all of the aforementioned licenses allow for a greater degree of
    flexibility in how they may be used.
    
    See the individual files in question and the COPYING file for more
    details.  The licenses are intended to foster and encourage
    improvements to BRL-CAD and the Open Source community as a whole
    without taking away from the package's heritage and history.  See the
    COPYING file for more details and information.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This release marks the first source and binary distribution of BRL-CAD
    as an Open Source project.  With the exception of a few minor bug
    fixes, the majority of changes made available through this release
    that separate it from 7.0.0 are source code style adoptions and
    clarifications of the developer documentation.  All files have adopted
    an emacs/vi local variables block for style conformance and the source
    code headers are modified to denote the new distribution and copyright
    status of the project.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The release marks the beginning of a series of benchmark suite
    enhancements.  The benchmark suite will now iteratively increase the
    number of rays being shot until a minimum amount of time has elapsed
    per render.  The resulting computations provide a more stable
    ray-trace figure of merit (rtfm) and allows the benchmark tests to
    scale more effectively to increasingly higher-performance machines
    without requiring intervention.  The current default testing time
    window minimum of 60 seconds elapsed wallclock time implies that the
    benchmark suite will now take about 15 minutes to complete.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Additional modifications were made to the benchmark suite including
    the addition of iterative frames that compare the stability of the
    performance results being observed.  The benchmark will continue to
    render frames of a designated time-complexity until the numbers are
    either stable or a maximum time window is reached.  The benchmark
    output now describes what the results mean and provides reference
    numbers for comparison.  The benchmark suite is also now included in
    the default installation as a command-line tool named 'benchmark'.
    
    In conjunction with the benchmark suite's requirements, some example
    geometry databases are now provided as part of the default install as
    are the corresponding reference benchmark images and logs.  They are
    intended to provide new users with sample geometry models to work
    with; and custom configurations may disable the installation of the
    additional geometry databases if so desired.

    --- 2005-07-12  Release 7.4.0                                      ---
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This update includes several enhancements and new additions including
    the impressive addition of the Realistic Image Synthesis Engine (RISE)
    path-tracer.  RISE is part of the Advanced Distributed Ray-Trace
    (ADRT) tool and library suite, which provides a high-performance
    triangle ray-trace engine.  This engine serves as the basis for
    several tools, RISE being the first toolset to be released.  This
    toolset includes a master job manager, a slave compute daemon for
    network distributed processing, and a client for observing job
    progress.
    
    Driven by user requests, the 'rtarea' command now reports significantly
    more information than before including area details for all assemblies
    and regions being rendered.  Both the presented and exposed areas are
    now computed too, including details on how many regions/assemblies are
    hit.  The exposed area is the potentially occluded 2D projection
    whereas the presented area is calculated without consideration for
    occlusions.  That is to say that if an object is in front covering a
    regions or assemblies from a particular view, the exposed area of the
    covered geometry would be reduced but the presented area would not.
    The rtarea command was added to MGED as well, along with rtweight.
    
    * improved mged initialization failure reporting - Sean Morrison
    * applied zlib vulnerability patch (CAN-2005-2096) - Sean Morrison

    This release includes the addition of a new geometry "Quantitative
    Analysis" tool called g_qa.  This tool is a new tool that combines
    some of the features of rtweight, rtcheck and g_lint, providing a
    robust means for computing the weight and volume of objects while also
    allowing a means to report overlaps, air gaps, external air regions,

    This release adds a new geometry creation interface to MGED that
    supports reverse modeling geometry of existing objects.  New geometry
    creation commands read point data sets in a simple text file format,
    recognizing categories and collections of points.  Using
    point-acquisition devices such as X-Station Vulcan advanced surveying
    systems from Arc Second Inc., points may be collected and used in MGED
    to facilitate the generation of geometry models.  Collection
    techniques are recognized for polygonal plates, cylinders, spheres,
    point clouds, and more.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This release marks a major milestone in the massive effort by the
    BRL-CAD developers and the open source community to provide a complete
    port of BRL-CAD to the Microsoft Windows platform.  This effort
    includes particular support and contributions from SURVICE
    Engineering, Inc., TNO Prins Maurits Laboratory, the U.S. Army
    Research Library (ARL), and others.  The Windows port effort was
    started several years ago, primarily through efforts of friends at the
    U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Research Development and Engineering
    Center (AMRDEC) and CG2, Inc.  Over the past year, the development
    effort was accelerated to a stable status through the work of SURVICE
    working for ARL.
    
    This release also includes another major contribution by SURVICE
    Engineering, Inc., a new modeling tool called Archer.  A more detailed
    announcement and overview of Archer will be given in the near future
    after the new tool is more fully integrated into the build system and
    tested further.
    
    Other noteworthy enhancements provided in this release include new
    sample applications that demonstrate the capabilities of the libpkg
    networking library, in-memory geometry database processing, reshooting
    of rays from analysis codes for testing purposes, and the librt root
    solver.  For analysts and modelers alike, the MGED modeler also
    acquires a few new commands including reid and remat that respectively
    assist with the assignment of region and material identifiers.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This release includes a new example geometry model, a "Toy Barbie
    Jeep" (see note below regarding trademarks) that was modeled in 2005
    over the course of a day by a small group of students attending a free
    hands-on BRL-CAD training class at SURVICE Engineering, Inc.  The
    class involved working in groups to simulate a real-world
    time-constrained modeling experience taking measurements of a real toy
    vehicle, considering what aspects of the vehicle are important for
    analytic purposes, deciding how to best represent complex geometric
    shapes, modeling the parts of the vehicle in MGED, assembling the
    components together, and running geometric processing and rendering
    tools on the final model.
    
    The DXF importer received considerable updates this iteration, with

    With this release marks several significant changes to BRL-CAD's
    licensing in order to simplify the distribution terms and increase
    overall flexibility of use.  All application front-end code in BRL-CAD
    is converted from the GNU General Public License (GPLv2) to the less
    restrictive GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPLv2.1).
    
    For documents not already in the public domain, BRL-CAD's default
    documentation license terms are also changed from the dual-licensed
    GFDL/GPL terms to the BSD Documentation License (BDL).  Originally
    derived from the FreeBSD Documentation License, the BDL is effectively
    the BSD License with language as it applies specifically to
    documentation.  The terms of the BDL are just as flexible allowing
    practically any use, whether it be commercial or private, so long as
    the authors are appropriately credited.
    
    As a collective work, BRL-CAD is being distributed under the terms of
    the LGPL.  Individual portions of BRL-CAD, save for a few 3rd party
    codes, effectively fall into one of the following three license
    categories: 1) LGPL, 2) BSD/BDL, or 3) are in the public domain.  See
    the terms of each individual license as well as BRL-CAD's COPYING file
    for more details.

    --- 2008-03-11  Release 7.12.0                                     ---
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Coalescing after just over a year of concentrated development efforts,
    this release unveils a plethora of Windows-specific enhancements, bug
    fixes, and additional tools ported.  Notably, the Windows improvements
    include fixing various issues with file management and porting many
    more ray tracers, geometry converters, framebuffer tools, and MGED
    classic mode support.
    
    This release also includes a new geometry converter for the United
    Kingdom's INTAVAL format from Her Majesty's Ministry of Defence.  The
    new importer was jointly developed by TNO PML and IABG mbH and is
    included in the BRL-CAD sources as a contributed module.
    
    Of the numerous bug fixes and feature enhancements in this release,
    one of the biggest productivity enhancements is the addition of the
    MGED "clone" and "tracker" commands.  Clone is a very powerful yet
    simple command that provides an intuitive means for performing deep
    copies of objects.  Tracker provides an interface for replicating
    objects along a spline path.  These 'new' commands originate from
    modifications originally developed by the now defunct Geometric
    Solutions, Inc., and after receiving considerable updates and rewrites
    are now once again available to users.
    
    Finally, this release also marks a major change to the BRL-CAD source
    code repository with a move from CVS to Subversion recently completed.
    The conversion was successfully completed with the entire history of
    BRL-CAD development preserved, accounting for nearly 25 years of
    continuous active development.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This release contains numerous enhancements to MGED's mirror command,
    now with the ability to mirror an object across arbitrary vectors or
    points along a standard axis.  Additionally, nirt now has a new "gap"
    option for reporting the empty spaces between objects on a given
    shotline with additional formatting options under development.
    
    The release also has a new procedural database geometry tool called
    'tire'.  This new tool was developed by Cliff Yapp for the purpose of
    creating highly detailed tires based on user-provided specifications.
    Given standard tire dimension information, the program can generate a
    corresponding curved sidewall tire on a fitted wheel and that has
    detailed tread.  The results are impressively realistic tires.
    
    * added '-l' list option to mged dbfindtree command - Bob Parker
    * fixed minor memory leak during raytracing - Daniel Roßberg

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This release enhances the formatting options available "out of the
    box" for the NIRT tool, allowing users to easily select different
    data reporting options without having to define their own custom
    configuration files.  CSV output options also allow for quick
    and easy import into spreadsheets.  The new -L option lists available
    formats.
    
    The tire tool's behavior has been improved - it will no longer
    overwrite pre-existing files and a "w" flag now accepts a value of
    "0" to disable creation of the default wheel rim for modelers wishing
    to supply their own rim.  A number of small but visual flaws in the
    tread geometry definitions were also corrected.
    
    MGED's dbconcat command works again without needing to specifying an
    affix for object names when importing geometry from one database to
    another.  Primitive selection via the Edit menu is working again
    thanks to the fixing of the solid_illum bug. The pipe primitive's
    performance problems during raytracing, due to unnecessary memory
    allocations, are now fixed.  The extrude primitive's handling of
    invalid geometry is now more robust.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Of the many enhancements included in this release, MGED gets a
    powerful new command called 'search' that is very similar to the UNIX
    'find' command but for geometry hierarchies.  Included in the
    implementation of 'search' is the ability to list geometry that
    matches a specified name using globbing patterns or regular
    expressions.  You can also search for objects that have attributes
    set, that are referenced in combinations, are at a particular depth in
    the geometry hierarchy, and much more.  You can combine search
    expressions together using boolean logic as well for even more
    powerful operations.
    
    * remove -empty option from mged "search" command - Cliff Yapp
