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.
