triangulation_plot, a FORTRAN90 code which plots a triangulation.

The code reads one file listing the nodes, and a second file consisting of groups of 3 or 6 nodes that make up triangles, and creates an Encapsulated PostScript image of the triangulation.


triangulation_plot prefix node_vis triangle_vis
where prefix is the common prefix for the node and triangle files, and will also be used to name the output file: and node_vis is an integer defining the node visibility: and triangle_vis is an integer defining the triangle visibility:
