TRIANGULATION_BOUNDARY_NODES
Boundary Nodes of a Triangulation


TRIANGULATION_BOUNDARY_NODES, a C++ code which analyzes the triangulation of a region, and lists those nodes which lie on the boundary of the triangulation.

Either a 3-node or 6-node triangulation may be used.

Although this boundary information is useful, it would be more useful to divide the boundary nodes up, if the boundary consists of more than one connected segment. Moreover, it would also be useful to report the sequence of nodes necessary to trace out a connected segment of the boundary. I imagine I will come back to work on those projects later!

Usage:

triangulation_boundary_nodes prefix
