RTCHECK(nged)		     BRL-CAD MGED Commands		 RTCHECK(nged)

NAME
       rtcheck - Executes the BRL-CAD rtcheck program with the default options
       of "-s50	M."

SYNOPSIS
       rtcheck [options]

DESCRIPTION
       Executes	the BRL-CAD rtcheck program with the default options of	"-s50
       M." The -M option tells rtcheck to read the viewing parameters from
       standard	input so that rays are only fired from the current view. The
       current database	name and the list of currently displayed objects are
       added to	the end	of the rtcheck command line. The rtcheck program is
       written such that options may be	repeated, and the last occurrence of
       an option will override any earlier occurrences.	This allows the	user
       to specify other	size (-s) options. The rrt command performs a similar
       function, but may be used to execute other programs as well. The
       rtcheck program uses raytracing to check	for overlapping	regions	in the
       list of objects passed on the command line. When	invoked	from within
       MGED, any discovered overlaps along a ray are represented as yellow
       lines that extend only in the areas of overlap. Details and a count of
       overlaps	are also reported. Note	that overlaps of less than 0.1 mm are
       currently ignored by rtcheck. The default option	of -s50	indicates that
       the checking rays should	be fired from a	uniform	square grid with 50
       rays on a side. This is very coarse and may miss	significant overlaps.
       It is recommended that the user select appropriate options for the
       rtcheck program and execute it for a variety viewing aspects to perform
       a thorough check. The granularity of the	grid may be controlled with
       the -s, -w, -n, -g, and -G options. See the man page on rtcheck for
       details.

EXAMPLES
       The example shows the use of the	rtcheck	command	to run the
	rtcheck	program	with rays fired	from a uniform grid with the rays
       spaced every 10 mm.

       Example 1. Run the rtcheck program to fire rays from a uniform grid
       with the	rays spaced a specified	distance apart.

       mged>rtcheck -g10 -G10

       Runs the	rtcheck	program	with rays fired	from a uniform grid with the
       rays spaced every 10 mm.
