Design an MGED command spreadsheet

completed by: Chan Ho Jun

mentors: Sean

BRL-CAD's primary solid geometry modeling application is called MGED. MGED contains a comprehensive set of more than 700 commands for manipulating, viewing, and inspecting geometry. There is a need to more effectively manage those commands, characterize them all, and get a "big picture" of the command landscape so that usability may be addressed.

This task involves designing a spreadsheet that will be used to characterize all of MGED's commands.


  • An existing spreadsheet already being used for BRL-CAD (i.e., non-MGED) commands is available.
