framebuffer support, image-processing and signal-processing tools. The
entire package is distributed in source code and binary form.
+This is the website for BRL-CAD.
+The website is maintained separately from BRL-CAD as a separate
+installation module. The primarly intent of the website module is to
+provide web developers with an isolated location for the website
+sourcecode to live version-controlled.
+At most, it should be sufficient to point a web root url to the
+htdocs/ directory. There should be no preprocessing or preparation of
+the website sourcecode for it to be used, as long as the required web
+server components are installed. The primary BRL-CAD website will
+automatically update to the version stored within this module
+Presently, the sole requirement for install is PHP 4 and a capable web
+server such as Apache.
+Scripts to install the website in a SourceForge-similar arrangement
+are included in the misc/ directory. This includes a cron job and a
+run script. Installation is described in more detail in the INSTALL
