Over the years I've scripted BRL-CAD models (one was very large and
detailed, others less so) with some fairly one-off Perl programs, some
with a kind of geometry input language that was used eventually to
produce another script that could be fed to mged.
I find I am reinventing that wheel once again and don't want to waste
the effort if there is a better way.
I know others have used the same kinds of kludges, but is anyone aware
of a serious effort toward some kind of high level, cad-neutral
geometry description language as an interface for a filter of some
kind that could output geometry in varying formats (kind of a geometry
compiler)? Would such a thing be of interest to other BRL-CAD users?
