Grid Points Within an Ellipse

**ELLIPSE_GRID**
is a Python library which
generates a grid of points
over the interior of an ellipse in 2D.

The library allows the user to define an ellipse by choosing its center and the length of its major and minor axes. The user also choose N, the number of subintervals into which the minor radius will be subdivided. It then returns the gridpoints defined by that choice.

**ELLIPSE_GRID** is available in
a C version and
a C++ version and
a FORTRAN90 version and
a MATLAB version and
a Python version.
