I had a look around, browsed my Linux system for graphics info, and found quite
a bit of stuff, but mostly beyond my skills, as yet.
I found vgagl, but can't find a .deb for it. is this included in svgalib? Does
this mean it won't work with my ATI Rage IIc? It seems to be about the speed I'm
looking for, complexity-wise.
A search of my system for openGL revelled glut, but this seems to be more about
opening windows rather than just making graphics. I tried installing glutg3 with
apt-get, but I think something is missing, as I get missing include errors.
Finally, I'd like to thank Kate for the link to the openGL tutorials. I just
re-read the E-Mail and I'll have a better look later. I'm still not convinced
this is what I want, but I'll see how it goes.
So far I've got the code to rotate an N-dimensional object and project it to N-1
dimensions, but the output is a list of co-ordinates. They look great when drawn
out, but the drawing is getting tiring : ) Once I get this graphics thing going,
I can fix this. I've also got lots of other things to work on, but I'll save
those for another mail.
Thanks again for all the help, and I'm looking forward to the meeting this
