VRML temple generation (20-Apr-1998)
VRML temple generation
[This was done in April 1998: Had a look at it again in nov 2001. The forms
example fails with Cortona. Try Cosmo or something else. Cortona is
asking for a float that is there IMHO. Glad if somebody can tell me
who is wrong. Cortona or me ... / DKS]
There are 2 interfaces:
(1) Try generate.html for the HTML/Form/POST interface
(2) Use "GET" like vrml.php?distance=2&noXCols=10&noZCols=8&colradius=0.25&colheight=5
This example shows how to generate VRML code with PHP. PHP seems to be a cool
and easier alternative than PERL and it is fast! Note how you can sorta build
geometry protos with a "GET" style request. You can't look at *.php files
since the server modifies them, but *.source (ascii) or *.phps (pretty) files are symbolic links that will let you see the code of the *.php.
The directory simple/ contains an older version
that shows how to inline a VRML generating php file directly into a wrl file.
The directory mixing contains a very simple example
that shows that you can actually mix VRML and PHP in
a single file (like HTML and PHP), not the case in above's examples.
It does answer the question: "How can I build 100 trees without typing".
Disclaimer: I ain't no real hacker, and surely it could be done better :)
Even the Proto that draws the columns with a simple cylinder ought be improved.
These examples are freeware.
