Readme for GlomeTrace

Readme for GlomeTrace-0.1.2

This is GlomeTrace, a ray tracing library.  Originally, it was part of Glome-hs, my haskell ray tracer.  I decided to pull out the code to trace rays against objects and distribute it as a stand-alone library so that other projects can use it.

Glome-hs required HOpenGL, but only for display.  Since this library is separated from any notion of display, it does not require HOpenGL, so it should run on more platforms than Glome-hs did.

A good source of documentation is the Haskell wiki.  In particular, take a look at the tutorial I wrote for Glome-hs.  A few things have changed, but most of the descriptions there are still valid.

I have begun to add haddock documentation to the actual code.

You will need to install GlomeVec first (or have cabal fetch it automatically).
