GroIMP stands for "Growth Grammar-related Interactive Modelling Platform" and is a 3D-modelling platform written in Java. Contains programming language XL, a rule-based extension of Java. Useful for the algorithmic modelling of 3D structures.
Download GroIMP-1.4.2.zip (46.9 Mb). Make a new folder(directory) with the name "groimp" or "GroIMP". Open the zip file and go into the subdirectory "GroIMP-1.4.2". Copy all files and the subdirectory "plugins" to the new created folder(directory) "groimp" or "GroIMP". That's it! Next version needs a higher version of Java, the file "install.txt" is not right on this point. I get "Unsupported major.minor version 51.0" in my "groimp-bugs.txt" file.
The groimp.cmd file
GroIMP works with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have made a groimp.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set CLASSPATH= set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive: groimp] cd [drive: groimp]\groimp java -Duser.home=[drive: groimp]\groimp -Xmx896m -jar core.jar 2>groimp-bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for GroIMP with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Edit and save the file "groimp.cmd" from the "groimp-ecs.zip" file. This file is copied to the "groimp" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths and/or Java version?, adjust according to your needs.
Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: groimp]\groimp\groimp.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "GroIMP". You find enclosed in the file a GroIMP OS/2 icon.
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command file (all driveletters are set to C:) and an OS/2 GroIMP icon: groimp-ecs.zip.
