Kali Release 3.1: available free of charge via anonymous ftp from geom.umn.edu (IP address 22.214.171.124). Authors: Nina Amenta The Geometry Center formerly University of California, Berkeley (email@example.com) Tamara Munzner (user interface panels) The Geometry Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) Ed H. Chi (X Window port and misc. enhancements) The Geometry Center (email@example.com) Stuart Levy (more X porting and more enhancements) The Geometry Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) Kali: an interactive editor for Euclidean symmetry patterns. Uses generic X windows plus the X-Forms library. Kaliprint: converts a kali output file into a postscript file. To run: type "kali" type "kaliprint outfile > result.ps" or "kaliprint outfile | lpr" See also: HELP Packing list: README document (this file) INSTALLATION document (how to compile it yourself) HELP document (also appears in Info panel) sun/kali, sun/kaliprint Solaris binaries sgi/kali, sgi/kaliprint SGI (Irix 5 or later) binaries irix4/kali, irix4/kaliprint SGI Irix 4 binaries linux/kali, linux/kaliprint Linux ELF binaries Makefile makefile data/ weaving.kali demo pattern turtles.kali demo pattern people.kali demo pattern callbacks.c source: kali help.h include (edited HELP): kali icons.h include: kali io.c source: kali, kaliprint io.h include: kali, kaliprint kali.c source: kali kali.h include: kali main.h include: kali kaliprint panel.fd Form Designer data: kali panel.c source (autogenerated): kali panel.h include (autogenerated): kali printmain.c source: kaliprint symmetry.c source: kali, kaliprint symmetry.h include: kali, kaliprint To compile: "make all" compiles both. Changes in version 3.1: Made to work with beta, no longer alpha, releases of XForms. XForms comes from T. C. Zhao and Mark Overmars; see INSTALLATION. Now independent of SGI and of VOGL library. Selection (with right mouse) and editing works everywhere -- no longer GL-specific. Cleaner, less modal interaction -- select and delete segments in any mode. Keyboard shortcuts for common operations. "Save as Postscript" option. Changes in version 3.0: Ported to X Windows. Only SGI version has line editing. Support for frieze groups, grids, and printing directly from kali added. Changes in version 2.1: Use most recent Conway notation: "o" means handle, "x" means crosscap. Start up with simplest (o/p1) not most complex (*632/p6m) group. Changes in version 2.0: Lines can now be moved as well as deleted. A new user interface with an info panel, icons and Conway notation besides crystallographic notation for each of the 17 groups. The new user interface was built using the public domain Forms Library by Mark Overmars of the University of Utrecht, which is available via anonymous ftp at archive.cs.ruu.nl.
