libvtk5.8 – Visualization Toolkit - A high level 3D visualization library - runtime

The Visualization Toolkit (VTK) is an object oriented, high level library that allows one to easily write C++ programs, Tcl, Python and Java scripts that do 3D visualization.

VTK enables users to concentrate on their work by providing a large number of excellent and feature packed high level functions that do visualization. The library needs OpenGL to render the graphics and for Linux machines Mesa is necessary. The terms/copyright can be read in /usr/share/doc/vtk/README and README.html. VTK-Linux-HOWTO has information about using vtk, getting documentataion or help and instructions on building VTK.

This package provides the shared libraries needed to run C++ programs that use VTK.

To compile C++ code that uses VTK you have to install libvtk5-dev.
