C the script of my local C-Course (4MB, PDF, german only) Also available as TeX .dvi [gzipped, 110KB ] from here. The Piggy Metafont Sources are required in your Metafont path for viewing the .dvi file. Postscript files from the most recent course (german only!): (a quite complete description of C and all of its features, with example programs)
C++ - get the script of my local C++-Course (273kB dvi-file, german only) [ gzipped, 77KB ] from here. Also Postscript ("Von der Klammer bis zum Raytracing" - with some introduction on how to do Raytracing in C++, basic structures) [Also available as pdf, although of less quality].
Raytracing in C++ - Please have a look to the special page dedicated to this field.
Other Activities - These have also been swapped out to a separate page for some reasons.

and of all people, who can do things that I can't do, even if I would like to do them.
And I don't like people who wake me up, independent of wether I'm daydreaming or nightdreaming...

- I am not fan of the Computing Center of the University of Innsbruck.

I am not related to Karolyn R. Benger, Norma Benger, Stephanie Benger, Brent Benger, Brent P. Benger, Rosenblum Benger, have not gone to the Benger Primary School in Western Australia, have made no paintings for the Golden Age Of Illustration and do not live in Sutton Benger (Wiltshire, England).
