The glome-hs package

[Tags: gpl, library, program]

Ray Tracer capable of rendering a variety of primitives, with support for CSG (difference and intersection of solids), BIH-based acceleration structure, and ability to load NFF format files. The rendering algorithms have been abstracted to an external library, GlomeTrace. This is just a front-end to the library that renders scenes into an opengl window.

Readme for glome-hs-0.60

This is GlomeView, a graphical frontend to Glome, my raytracer.  Originally, Glome was a monolithic program, but I have now moved most of the internals to a couple of libraries, GlomeVec and GlomeTrace.

GlomeView requires HOpenGL.

This was one of the first things I wrote in Haskell.  As such, it has a few rough edges.
