Introduction
------------

This is an OS2 port of the IRIT solid modeller. This archive only contains
the executables for the solid modeller for OS2, as well as the OS2 driver
C source code. Full sources as well as documentation for this package are
available from several ftp sites as follows:

Installation
------------
* For a proper execution of the IRIT programs, copy the emx.dll shared
library to one of your shared (dll) libraries directory.

* set the following environment variables: 'set IRIT_PATH BinDirectory/',
'set OS2IRIT=OS2IritFullPath' and 'set OS2IRIT_POS=Xmin Ymin Xwidth Yheight'.
For example:

set IRIT_PATH=c:/c/irit/bin/'
set OS2IRIT=c:/c/irit/bin/os2irit.exe'
set OS2IRIT_POS=400 300 350 250

which assumes os2irit.exe can be found as 'c:/c/irit/bin/os2irit.exe' and
that it will open a display window of size 350x250 placed at lower left
corner 400x300.

* type 'irit demo' for a not so quick demo. You can pretty much follow
it without documentation, but if you have problems try reading them
first before sending me Email... Basically you have control over the
rotation/translation/etc. transformation window each time an interact
function is executed in the text window. Use mouse Button1 and quit this
mode with the exit box. Abort drawing in the middle using Button2 with
the mouse on the transformation window. MSDOS users of IRIT will find this
interface almost identical.

* For use of the rest of the tools, see documentation at the above ftp sites.

Comments
--------
This version of IRIT has features that are not included in the official
3.0 release of IRIT, but are used in some of the demo *.irt files.
These features are not documented in the official 3.0 documentation
that can be found in the ftp sites above. These feature will probably become
official in the next release of IRIT. Use them at your own risk.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read: http://www.os2museum.com/wp/mtswslnk/
