Polyray is a combination of an extensive set of modelling primitives together
with a comprehensive renderer. Models are specified in an ASCII file, which

plus at least 2Mb of RAM is required.

Polyray provides a number of distinct features, the most important of which
are the freedom of use of expressions in the modelling file and the ability
to render very complex mathematical surfaces.

There are three archives necessary:,, and
These contain the documents for Polyray, a set of data files, and the

See the file "quickref.txt", or "polyray.doc" for details on the command
line options and data file syntax.
