wrapdemo - demonstrates surface wrapping of pixmaps
Demonstrates surface wrapping of pixmaps by wrapping a
picture or Susanna Rubens around a 3-dimensional ball.
The demo prompts your for a mode to be used and several
details. Just follow the instructions on the screen and
make your selections.
Once the program runs you can use the following keys:
<Q> and <A>, <Z> and <X>, <O> and <P>
to rotate the plane around the space axes.
<T> and <V>, <F> and <G>, <W> and <S>
to move up, down, north, south, east, west. (world
to toggle rendering vs. wire frame.
<W> and <S>
to scale in non-world view compilation -- see
<1> and <2>
to change rotation increment.
<3> through <9>
to change surface density.
<R> to change shading method.
<C> to quit the program.
<I> to reset the rotation to the startup values.
This demo is part of svgalib and can be found in the
threeDkit/ subdirectory of the original svgalib distribu-
tion. However, it is not installed in the system by
default, s.t. it is unclear where you can find it if your
svgalib was installed by some linux distribution. Even
then, when you have the demo on your system, you probably
won't have the sources s.t. it is only of limited use for
In case of any such problem, simply get an svgalib distri-
bution from the net. You even don't need to install it.
Just make in the threeDkit/ subdirectory. As of this writ-
ing, svgalib-1.2.12.tar.gz is the latest version and can
be retrieved by ftp from sunsite.unc.edu at
/pub/Linux/libs/graphics and tsx-11.mit.edu at
/pub/linux/sources/libs which will most probably be mir-
rored by a site close to you.
