Whelk is small interactive OpenGL program that generates a cornucopia of shells
horns and many other 3D spiral forms. Exports Wavefront OBJ and POV-Ray mesh2.

Whelk uses various sine-wave deformations that modify the mesh in layers. Each
active layer can use a different waveform and parameters.

Whelk-0-0-3c.exe binary for MS Windows has been tested Windows XP 32-bit and
Windows 7 64 bit.

Shellylib looks more advanced than Whelk; however, Whelk might do some things
that Shellylib does not do.

Whelk was coded in C++ using the FLTK toolkit and utilizes WildMagic5p13 by
