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.
