E(nged)			     BRL-CAD User Commands		       E(nged)

NAME
       e_command - Adds	the objects in the argument list to the	display	list
       so that they will appear	on the MGED display. This is a synonym for the
       draw command.

SYNOPSIS
       e [-A attribute name/value pairs] [-s]
	 [-A -oattribute name/value pairs] [-C#/#/#] [-m1] {objects}

DESCRIPTION
       Adds the	objects	in the argument	list to	the display list so that they
       will appear on the MGED display.	This is	a synonym for the draw
       command;	see that entry for a full list of options. The -C option
       provides	the user a way to specify a color that overrides all other
       color specifications including combination colors and region-id-based
       colors. The -A and -o options allow the user to select objects by
       attribute. The -s specifies that	subtracted and intersected objects
       should be drawn with solid lines	rather than dot-dash lines. The	-m1
       option will display BOTs	shaded if the display manager is OpenGL	and
       the zbuffer and lighting	is enabled. To enable these settings, from the
       MGED GUI, choose	"Modes/Display Manager/OpenGL",	"Misc/Z-buffer"	and
       "Misc/Lighting".	If the zbuffer and lighting is already enabled,	toggle
       them off	then back on to	ensure they are	enabled.

EXAMPLES
       The following examples show the use of the e command to draw particular
       objects,	to specify color, to draw with shape lines rather than
       dot-dash	lines, and to limit the	objects	to be drawn to those having
       specific	attribute names	and value pairs.

       Example 1. Draw specific	objects	in the MGED display.

       mged> e object1 object2
	   Draws object1 and object2 in	the MGED display.

       Example 2. Limit	the objects to be drawn	to those having	specific
       attribute names and value pairs.

       mged>e -A -o Comment {First comment} Comment {Second comment}

       Draws objects that have a "Comment" attribute with a value of either
       "First comment" or "Second comment."
