Welcome to the IBM Personal graPHIGS Programming Interface, IBM's implementation of the PHIGS standard graphics programming interface. This guide takes you through the steps of writing and running your first graPHIGS API programs for the IBM RS/6000. This guide assumes you are familiar with the C programming language and with an AIX editor, such as vi. In addition, the graPHIGS API, V2R2.0 or later, must be installed on your system.
This guide is divided into the following sections:
cd /usr/lpp/graPHIGS/samples/gettingstarted make
You can then change directory (cd) to an individual sample directory and run the sample by entering:
where name is the name of the sample (such as square ).
The sample debugger provides the ability to trace, debug and modify the graPHIGS API calls interactively. Additionally, it allows you to look at the Structure Store, View Characteristics and Workstation specific data.
For details on compiling, linking and running the debugger, look at the README file in this AIX directory:
