package for three-dimensional drawing with MetaPost output

3DLDF is a GNU package for three-dimensional drawing with MetaPost output. It is written in C++ using CWEB. It is intended, among other things, to provide a convenient way of including 3D graphics in TeX documents. This package includes an interactive program called `3dldf', which implements a language intended to resemble Donald Knuth's METAFONT language and John Hobby's MetaPost language, which is based on METAFONT.


Documentation/ has to be updated. As a partial substitute, many examples are included in the subdirectory `3DLDF-2.0/examples/'.
