Description Jeremy Murphy 2011-09-02 12:26:52 UTC
At the moment there is no NURBS programming library in portage (unless I have overlooked it).  sci-libs/nurbs++ from sunrise has not been updated since 2002 and so does not compile.
SISL sounds like a really professional NURBS library that is under continual development.

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Jeremy Murphy 2011-10-07 01:01:21 UTC
Sorry, I should clarify and correct myself that although there has been recent work to address the compilation errors of nurbs++, it appears that development of the library stalled in 2002 (and it still does not compile for me).

Anyway... that is kind of beside the point because even if nurbs++ was working, I still think that SISL is a worthy addition to Gentoo in its own right.
