Our news.feed is finally processing incoming news, but apparently news
got out since I received some answers back.
Sun has two packages:
Sun Graphics Kernel System (SunGKS)
Order Number: GKS-4.1-4-4-21
A 2D programming library, with some 3D.
XGL Graphics Library
Order Number: XGL-2.0-4-4-21
A 3D programming library, with some 2D.
>From what I gather, these pacakage will take advantage of the
hardware that is in the machine reguardless of the machine that
it was compiled on. Our campus has GKS, but not XGL, so I
compiled the GKS examples, and ran them on a cgthree, cgsix,
and cgtwelve. There was a differnce in speed and functionality.
Have a day,
