Description[edit]

The "rrt" command executes the specified program with the provided options and includes the current database name and the list of currently displayed objects on the command line. This command effectively executes:

The rrt command also provides the current MGED viewing parameters to the program on standard input. Many BRL-CAD programs use the -M option to indicate that viewing parameters will be provided on standard input. The rt command can be simulated with rrt as:

       rrt /usr/brlcad/bin/rt -M -s50
