XYZL_DISPLAY
Display 3D Points and Lines in the MATLAB Graphics Window


XYZL_DISPLAY is a MATLAB program which reads XYZL information containing a list of 3D point coordinates, and the indices of points that form lines, and displays a plot in the MATLAB graphics window.

The program SXYZ_DELAUNAY, which creates a Delaunay triangulation on a sphere, is an example of a program whose output is in the form that this program can display.

Usage:

xyzl_display ( 'prefix' )
where reads the point coordinate data in 'prefix.xyz' and the line information in 'prefix.xyzl', and displays a plot.
