What is GList?
GList is an XML-based object database for the DIRSIG graphics package for defining the description and position of objects in a scene. It includes a number of basic geometric shapes, as well as other functions for defining points. It replaces DIRSIG's previous Object Database (ODB) format, which DIRSIG says is better suited for handcrafted scenes.
GList is a description language for the DIRSIG graphics package. With DIRSIG, 3D scenes can be specified with both visible and infrared light. GList uses XML to specify object attributes in a scene. GList files use the '.plist' extension. GList replaces DIRSIG's older format, the Object Database or ODB, although ODB is still supported.
The entire list is in one
Users can define instances or complex objects from primitive shapes. Some elements of a scene can be varied by population or appear in a scene by weight. Elements can also be generated randomly.
