hi,

a recent chance remark in a newsgroup post (Josh: "Are there other programs/ways
to create simple df3 files of simple shapes?") got me thinking/working, and I am
happy to announce the resulting 'df3tcl' program, which uses a scripting
language (Tcl) to create and or modify DF3 files.

the program is still .. under development, so there's a basic Makefile, and a
(draft) man page, but no './configure' or install target, yet.  you will need to
install the df3 library first:
<https://drive.google.com/file/d/1uPn5qxeVSvhbNnwkdLkQuR1qa5fBEwoX/view?usp=sharing>

then extract the archive, change into the directory and 'make check'.  if all's
well, you will see 'df3' among the interpreter commands listed.  then just copy
the executable, and the man page, to suitable locations.


enjoy, jr.

Thanks !

Just to make sure it doesn't get lost on one of its only potential testers...
The Blender exporter converts smoke simulations to DF3. It's also one of its
available textures.

the second "progress report".  :-)  added commands to simplify addressing
ranges/subvolumes and updated the man page, including two more examples.  hope
no new bugs were introduced.


enjoy, jr.
