NAME
       bev - Performs the operations indicated in the Boolean_formula and
       stores the result in new_obj.

SYNOPSIS
       bev [-t]	[-P#] {new_obj}	{Boolean_formula}

DESCRIPTION
       Performs	the operations indicated in the	Boolean_formula	and stores the
       result in new_obj. The new_obj will be stored as	an NMG shape (it may
       be converted to a polysolid by using the	nmg_simplify command). If the
       -t option is specified, then the	resulting object will consist entirely
       of triangular facets. The default is to allow facets of any complexity,
       including holes.	The -P option specifies	the number of CPUs to use for
       the calculation (however, this is currently ignored). Only simple
	Boolean_formulas are allowed. No parentheses are allowed and the
       operations are performed	from left to right with	no precedence. More
       complex expressions must	be expressed as	BRL-CAD	objects	using the r,
       g, or ccommands and evaluated using the facetize	or ev commands.

EXAMPLES
       The example demonstrates	the use	of the bev command with	the -t option
       to create a triangulated	object.

       Example 1. Creating a triangulated object by intersecting two objects

       mged> bev -t triangulated_lens sphere1 +	sphere2
	   Creates a triangulated object by intersecting objects sphere1 and
	   sphere2
