**pyramid_grid**,
a Python code which
generates a grid of points
over the interior of a pyramid in 3D.

The pyramid has a square base. As it rises, the square cross section smoothly shrinks to a point. Thus there are five vertices, of which four are on the square base, and one is the apex. There are 8 edges, consisting of the four edges of the square, and an edge joining each base vertex to the apex vertex.

The unit pyramid is the set of points (X,Y,Z) such that:

- ( 1 - Z ) <= X <= 1 - Z - ( 1 - Z ) <= Y <= 1 - Z 0 <= Z <= 1.

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