       aven - sophisticated cave viewer for Unix and MS Windows


       aven [ --survey=SURVEY ] [ --print ] .3d file


       Aven displays processed cave surveys in a window and allows you to manipulate the view.

       Note  that  there  is no perspective in the view. This means that it is impossible to tell
       which way round a cave is rotating, or whether you are viewing something from  behind,  or
       in  front.  So  if  you think the direction of rotation in wrong, or changes as you watch,
       this is just your brain being confused, not a bug!

       The best way to move the cave is with the mouse.  We suggest you try  each  of  these  out
       after reading this section to get a feel for how they work.

       If you hold down the right button then the cave is dragged when you move the mouse.

       If  you hold down the left button, then the cave is rotated if you move left or right, and
       zoomed if you move up and down.  If you hold down Ctrl while dragging with the left  mouse
       button, then the cave rotates and tilts at the same time instead.

       If  your  mouse  has a middle button then holding it down and moving the mouse up and down
       tilts the cave.  Moving the mouse left and right has no effect.

       And if you have a scrollwheel, this can be used to zoom in/out.

       By default the mouse moves the cave, but if you press Ctrl-R, then the mouse will move the
       viewpoint  instead  (i.e.  everything  will go in the opposite direction). Apparently this
       feels more natural to some people.

       P and L select Plan and eLevation respectively.  Changing between  plan  to  elevation  is
       animated  to  help  you  see  where  you  are  and  how  things  relate. This animation is
       automatically disabled on slow machines to avoid user frustration.

       Comma ', and Slash / tilt up and down respectively. Tilt goes 180 degrees from  plan  view
       to a view from directly below (upside down plan).

       Space  toggles automatic rotation about a vertical axis on and off.  The speed of rotation
       for this, and animated transitions between plan and elevation, is controlled by Z and X.

       Crosses and/or labels can be displayed at survey stations.   Ctrl-X  toggles  crosses  and
       Ctrl-N station names.  Ctrl-L toggles the display of survey legs.

       Delete  is  useful if you get lost - it resets the scale, position, and rotation speed, so
       that the cave returns to the centre of the screen. There are also keyboard controls to use
       instead of the mouse - Shift helps here as it accelerates all movements:

       Z, X : Faster/Slower Rotation
       R: Reverse direction of rotation
       Enter, Space: Start and stop auto-rotation
       Ctrl-Cursor Left, Ctrl-Cursor Right: Rotate cave one step clockwise/anti-clockwise (also: C, V)
       Ctrl-Cursor Up , Ctrl-Cursor Down: Higher/Lower Viewpoint (also: ' , /)
       ] , [: Zoom in/Out
       U, D: Set view to Up/Down
       N, S, E, W: Set view to North, South, East, West
       Delete: Reset to default scale, rotation rate, etc
       P, L: Plan, Elevation
       Cursor Left, Cursor Right: Pan survey Left/Right (on screen)
       Cursor Up, Cursor Down: Pan survey Up/Down (on screen)
       Ctrl-N: Toggle display of station names
       Ctrl-X: Toggle display of crosses at stations
       Ctrl-L: Toggle display of survey legs
       Ctrl-F: Toggle display of surface legs
       Ctrl-G: Toggle display of grid
       Ctrl-B: Toggle display of bounding box
       O: Toggle display of non-overlapping/all names
       Ctrl-R: reverse sense of controls
       Shift: accelerates all movement keys

       A little experimentation should give a better understanding of how this works.

       There  is an auto-resizing scale bar along the bottom of the screen which varies in length
       as you zoom in or out.  In the lower right corner is a compass pointer showing  which  way
       is  North,  and  a  clino  pointer showing the angle of tilt.  And in the upper right is a
       colour key showing the correspondence between colour and depth (by default - you can  also
       colour by date or by error).


       -p, --print
              Print the specified file and exit.

       -s, --survey=SURVEY
              Only load the sub-survey 'SURVEY'.
