gives a short description of possible command line arguments.
turns on verbose output (incl. IPC communication); use it to locate VRweb crashes (if they should ever happen...) and include the output in the bug report
sets the language of the user interface to one of
There are currently no plans for supporting other languages. Please, send bug reports or information requests in English or German only.
base URL for relative references (typically set via
-URL %u in ~/.mailcap).
open file in a running VRweb instance or create a new VRweb window if none found. It is not possible to redirect stdinput to a remote instance. However the optional FILE argument after all options allows this using a
directory or URL where to find on-line help files. Defaults to
directory of VRweb font files. Defaults to
set scene background color. Color specified as for -bg.
select the initial drawing mode to be one of
selects the interactive drawing mode to be one of the list above or
same to use the same mode during navigation too.
sets an (overall) speed factor for navigation
inquire visual with alpha-bitplanes. Note that transparent materials are only shown when blending is turned on (display option "anti-aliased lines") and will look wrong if polygons do not happen to be ordered from back to front. A correct implementation is in progress.
selects the backbuffer for Mesa to be one of
[pixmap|image|auto]. Pixmap transfers each drawing
command immediately to the XServer. Image causes all drawings to be
made into an XImage, which is transfered to the XServer when complete;
shared memory usage (only available when displayed locally) makes this
transfer fast. The default setting auto uses image for shaded views
and pixmap for wireframes.
turns off double buffering for 3D renderings. Usually slower than double buffering. OpenGL however may provide a X-visual with greater depth.
render OpenGL through X-server (slower).
use mosaic for anchor requests and on-line help (else netscape).
force WWWInline and Texture2 to be searched as local files.
The following command line options are common to all InterViews applications:
select the color for background, foreground and flat GUI elements respectively. Specify colors with symbolic names (white, black, green etc.) or hexadecimal RGB values:
(you can get them also from the color chooser).
selects the font or fontset. See SceneViewer.ad for details.
the display where VRweb should be shown. Normally determined by environment variable $DISPLAY.
selects the visual class. Valid settings are: PseudoColor, TrueColor, DirectColor, StaticGray, GrayScale, StaticColor. Normally VRweb uses the default visual to avoid color map flashing ("technicolor").
selects a visual id for the window. See xdpyinfo for visual-ids available on your XServer.
turns on (default) or off (less memory usage) double buffering for GUI elements.
selects the GUI style to be SGI-like Motif (default), "normal" Motif or OpenLook.
specifies an arbitrary Xattribute on commandline.
VRweb follows the naming scheme of Xdefaults for Harmony, the HyperWave authoring tool for Unix/X11 (Hyper-G client). The place of VRweb in the resource hierarchy is
