Protracer is a simple raytracer originally written in 1999 as a university course project. Please beware that, despite the name, there is nothing especially professional about Protracer. The name is meant to be a pun on the Protracker music tracker application. Protracer is now released under the GNU General Public License. Protracer currently supports a very limited subset of the POV-Ray file format. To install run $ ./configure $ make and (as root) # make install To process a scene description you can run a command like: $ protracer -o output.ppm input.pov Where input.pov is the input scene description and output.ppm is the output in PPM format (this is the only possible output format right now). For a list of available options, run: $ protracer --help Test script: Protracer comes with a test script. To run the test script you would first need to run "make" from the source directory. Then run the test script from the "tests" directory: cd tests ./tests.sh This will produce PPM image files for all the examples included with the source.
