Is there any working C++ source code for a lightmap generation algorithm using Radiosity or any other GI system? I've found technical papers only, but I can't really find any implementation.

share|improve this question - you might find the source code of "hlrad" (Half-Life RADiosity lightmap compiler) useful.

It's not "true C++" but it shouldn't be hard to make sense of it.
