NAME
       vdeck - generate	COM-GEOM decks from a GED file

SYNOPSIS
       vdeck file.vg

DESCRIPTION
       The vdeck tool converts a model into an ASCII text representation
       separating regions (combinations	with the region	flag set) and
       primitives (also	known as solids) into separate files. A	list of
       objects to be converted are selected interactively from the table of
       contents. String	matching operators (wild cards)	like those used	to
       specify file or directory names in sh(1)	are provided for this purpose,
       as well as to search for	names in the table of contents.

       One or more COM-GEOM decks can be output. Each deck consists of three
       files: the solid, region, and region-id tables. These can be combined
       with cat(1).

       A menu of the commands and their	usage is available by typing ?	to the
       program.

WARNING
       The vdeck tool is intended for v5 BRL-CAD geometry databases only.
       Files produced by older (v4 and earlier)	versions of BRL-CAD may	be
       incompatible with vdeck.

EXAMPLE
       In the following	example, _model_ is the	name of	the BRL-CAD model and
       _groupname_ is a	group or region.  Vdeck	converts all of	the primitives
       and regions within the specified	group into text	and writes them	out to
       files:

	   > vdeck <model>.g
	   command ( ? for menu	) >> i <groupname>
	   command ( ? for menu	) >> d
	   ===================================================
	   O U T P U T F I L E S
	   solid table = "solids"
	   region table	= "regions"
	   region identification table = "region_ids"
	   command ( ? for menu	) >> q
	   quitting...
