Title: Kip, Version 1.0

Abstract

This high-performance ray tracing library provides very fast rendering; compact code; type flexibility through C++ "generic programming" techniques; and ease of use via an application programming interface (API) that operates independently of any GUI, on-screen display, or other enclosing application. Kip supports constructive solid geometry (CSG) models based on a wide variety of built-in shapes and logical operators, and also allows for user-defined shapes and operators to be provided. Additional features include basic texturing; input/output of models using a simple human-readable file format and with full error checking and detailed diagnostics; and support for shared data parallelism. Kip is written in pure, ANSI standard C++; is entirely platform independent; and is very easy to use. As a C++ "header only" library, it requires no build system, configuration or installation scripts, wizards, non-C++ preprocessing, makefiles, shell scripts, or external libraries.
