A powerful tool that can be used to visualize 3-dimensional data sets
ifrit [qt-options] [options] [dir_name]
This manual page documents briefly the ifrit command. This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.
accepts an 8-bit display
starts IFRIT with all windows docked together into a single window.
does not show the splash screen at start-up
uses small font to reduce the QT window size
IFRIT is being used remotely. This option can be used to minimize re-drawing of the widget windows.
IFRIT is not idiosyncratic. This prompts IFRIT not to ask for a confirmation when exiting or running scripts.
sets the number of processors to use. Note that only some parts of IFRIT support parallel execution so far.
loads the state from the previously saved state file filename.
runs IFRIT in batch mode, taking animation script from the file filename. If filename starts with sign "+", standard directories (see ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES ) will be prepended to the file name.
show the list of available command-line options.
IFRIT understands the following environment variables (all in capitals):
The main IFRIT directory where you keep the variable file ifrit.nam and options file(s) ifrit.ini. If this variable is not set, IFRIT assumes that current directory is the main directory.
The default directory for the data files. If not set, IFRIT will start searching for the data files in the current directory.
The default directory for the mesh data files. If not set, IFRIT will start searching for the mesh data in the default data directory.
The default directory for the particle data files. If not set, IFRIT will start searching for the particle data in the default data directory.
The default directory for the vector field data files. If not set, IFRIT will start searching for the vector field data in the default data directory.
The default directory for the tensor field data files. If not set, IFRIT will start searching for the tensor field data in the default data directory.
The directory where IFRIT will place image and animation files. If not set, IFRIT will put image files into the current directory.
The directory where IFRIT will place animation scripts. If not set, IFRIT will put scripts into its main directory.
The directory where IFRIT will place custom palettes. If not set, IFRIT will put palettes into its main directory.
