Maths library required for fundamental graphics

Post by TU » Wed, 15 Feb 1995 20:01:49

Dear News reader,

I am looking out for a shareware graphics library on DOS (in C or C++) for
simple computations as follows :
- Given two points form a line equation.
- Given three points form an arc equation.
- Given 2 end points and the centre point form an arc equation.
- Given 2 end points and radius and direction form the arc equation.
- Given the centre and radius form an circle equation.
- Find the intersection of :
        Two lines, Line and arc, Two arcs, Line and circle and so on.
- Find a tangent to an arc or a circle at a given point.
- Find whether a point lies on a line or on an arc or on a circle.
- Find the perpendicular distance between a point and a line.
- Given a line and a point on the line, get a line perpendicular to that line.
- Given two lines state whether they are co-linear.
- Given two arcs state whether thay are co-arc.

These are the kind of computations I need to perform. I am basically looking
for a library that supports this, but I am also interested in studying the
same. Hence it will be extremely helpful if I can get the source code also.
This will also help me if I need to do any modifications.

You can mail your reply to me at the following internet address :

1. 3D Solid Modeling Graphics Libraries Required

I am looking for the following:

A graphics library (either C or C++, either binary or source), which
contains routines for doing the following solid modeling operations:

-> union, subtraction, intersection

Objects are 3D, possibly convex, possibly with holes, but without

Note I am not looking for a standalone solid modeler, but rather a
library which I can link to (SunOS and Solaris, if source not included).

3D rendering features are not required either.

We require something robust, and efficient.

If anyone can point me towards a package, either commercial or in
the public domain, I would be most grateful.

Thank you.
