       evolver-ogl-d  - The Surface Evolver program with OpenGL/GLUT display and double precision
       floating point format


       evolver-ogl-d [-a][-d][-e][-i][-m][-q][-w][-x][-y][-h][-V] [-f FILE] [-pN] [DATAFILE]


       The Surface Evolver is an interactive program for the modelling of liquid surfaces  shaped
       by  various forces and constraints.  Basically the Surface Evolver minimizes the energy of
       triangulated surfaces according to designated energies and constraints.

       This man page mainly documents command line options and environment variables.


       -a     Autoconvert to  named  quantities  when  needed  (default  is  on);  use  `-a-'  to
              deactivate autoconversion.

       -d     Begin  with  parser debugging on (equivalent to `debug' runtime command); beware of
              copious output.

       -e     Echo stdin to stdout; meant for testing piped input.

       -f FILE
              After loading DATAFILE, read commands from file, then command line prompt.

       -i     Preserve DATAFILE numbers for element id's, rather than renumbering.

       -m     Begin with memory debugging on (equivalent to `memdebug' runtime  command);  beware
              of copious output.

       -pN    Run with N concurrent processes.

       -q     Convert to named quantities at start (equivalent to `convert_to_quantities' runtime

       -w     Exit immediately after any warning or error message; meant for batch runs.

       -x     Exit immediately after any error message; meant for batch runs.

       -y     Break to user prompt after any warning message.

       -h     Display this help, then exit.

       -V     Display the version and the banner, then exit.


       The latest version  of  the  Surface  Evolver,  up-to-date  documentation,  and  more  are
       available on-line from:



       Surface  Evolver  Version 2.70a (Debian 2.70+ds-3), August 27, 2013, 64-bit.  Compiled for
       double, 15 digits  precision.   Built  with  Geomview  support.   Built  with  OpenGL/GLUT


              Colon-separated list of paths automatically searched for datafiles, included files,
              or on-line help  documentation.   By  default,  the  paths  /usr/share/doc/evolver-
              doc/html and /usr/share/doc/evolver-doc/examples are appended (in that order); this
              default behaviour can be cancelled by appending at least three  consecutive  colons
              (":::") at its end.
