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

NAME
       handle -	Creates	a BRL-CAD .g file containing handles.

SYNOPSIS
       handle [options...]

DESCRIPTION
       handle is a program to create a BRL-CAD database	of handles. Up to
       twenty-six handles of the same dimensions may be	created.  handle uses
       libwdb to create	a BRL-CAD database file. The handles are composed of
       three cylinders,	two tori, and two arb8s. This program may be run
       interactively or	the user may specify options on	a command line.	If the
       user chooses to run the program interactively he	answers	the questions
       as the program prompts him. Below are the options that can be used on
       the command line.

OPTIONS
       -fname.g
	   BRL-CAD file	name.

       -n#
	   The number of handles to be creates (must be	less than or equal to
	   26).

       -l#
	   Length of handle in millimeters.

       -h#
	   Height of handle in millimeters.

       -r1#
	   Radius, r1, of the tori in millimeters.

       -r2#
	   Radius, r2, of the tori in millimeters.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1. Interactive handle Session

	   This	program	constructs a handle with the base centered
	   at (0, 0, 0)	and the	height extending in the	positive z-
	   direction.  The handle will be composed of 3	cylinders,
	   2 tori, and 2 arb8s.

	   Enter the name of the mged file to be created (25 char max).
		handle.g
	   Enter number	of handles to create (26 max).
		3
	   Enter the length and	height of handle in mm.
		200 100
	   Enter the radius of the tori	in mm.
		20
	   Enter the radius of the cylinders in	mm.
		10

	   mged	file name:  handle.g
	   length:  200.000000 mm
	   height:  100.000000 mm
	   radius of tori:  20.000000 mm
	   radius of cylinders:	 10.000000 mm
	   number of handles:  3

       Example 2. Single-Line handle Command

       handle -fhandle.g -n3 -l200 -h100 -r120 -r210

       Both of these examples produce the same result -	a database called
       handle.g	containing three handles of length 200mm, height 100mm,	radius
       20mm for	the rounding, and radius 10mm for the cylinders.
