OgreMeshUpgrader man is not up-to-date

Post by daarkron » Tue Feb 18, 2014 11:38 am

Hello,

With the Debian package ogre-1.8-tools on Debian Wheezy,

if I do:

Code: Select all

$man OgreMeshUpgrader
I get:

Code: Select all

OGREMESHUPGRADE(1)                                                                                                                                                                                                    OGREMESHUPGRADE(1)

NAME
       OgreMeshUpgrade - upgrades .mesh files to the latest version

SYNOPSIS
       OgreMeshUpgrade [-e] [-t] sourcefile [destfile]

DESCRIPTION
       OgreMeshUpgrade upgrades an Ogre .mesh definition to the latest version.

OPTIONS
       A summary of options is included below.

       -e     DON'T generate edge lists (for stencil shadows)

       -t     Generate tangents (for normal mapping)

       sourcefile
              Name of the file to convert

       destfile
              Optional name of file to write to. If you don't specify this OGRE overwrites the existing file.

Code: Select all

OgreMeshUpgrader: Upgrades or downgrades .mesh file versions.
Provided for OGRE by Steve Streeting 2004-2012

Usage: OgreMeshUpgrader [opts] sourcefile [destfile] 
-i             = Interactive mode, prompt for options
-l lodlevels   = number of LOD levels
-d loddist     = distance increment to reduce LOD
-p lodpercent  = Percentage triangle reduction amount per LOD
-f lodnumtris  = Fixed vertex reduction per LOD
-e         = DON'T generate edge lists (for stencil shadows)
-t         = Generate tangents (for normal mapping)
-td [uvw|tangent]
           = Tangent vertex semantic destination (default tangent)
-ts [3|4]      = Tangent size (3 or 4 components, 4 includes parity, default 3)
-tm            = Split tangent vertices at UV mirror points
-tr            = Split tangent vertices where basis is rotated > 90 degrees
-r         = DON'T reorganise buffers to recommended format
-d3d       = Convert to D3D colour formats
-gl        = Convert to GL colour formats
-srcd3d    = Interpret ambiguous colours as D3D style
-srcgl     = Interpret ambiguous colours as GL style
-E endian  = Set endian mode 'big' 'little' or 'native' (default)
-b         = Recalculate bounding box (static meshes only)
-V version = Specify OGRE version format to write instead of latest
             Options are: 1.8, 1.7, 1.4, 1.0
sourcefile = name of file to convert
destfile   = optional name of file to write to. If you don't
             specify this OGRE overwrites the existing file.
It would be nice to see all options directly in the manual...

Best,
daarkron

Best thing to do is contact the package maintainer as there is a clear process for this established in Debian. It is not a guarantee they will see this post, or use this forum regularly.
