anytooff is off by a dimension (again)
Currently I get the following behavior my (3d) VECT is turned to a 4OFF: julia 67% more ve VECT # this a path forming a "v" 1 3 0 # there are 1 polypaths, 3 vertices, 0 colors 3 # the 3 verticies on each line 0 # the number of colors on these paths 0 0 0 # now here come the vertex coordinates 1 1 0 0 2 0 julia 68% /u/gcg/ngrap/bin/next/anytooff <ve> ve.off julia 69% more ve.off 4OFF 3 2 3 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 0 2 0 1 2 0 1 2 1 2 Is this intentional ? If so it is not documented. Neither in: "DESCRIPTION Anytooff reads a geom from standard in and outputs the new polylist to standard out." nor in " When vector objects are switched into polylists, they are transformed into polygons with two vertices. The faces of the polygons are the same color as the given vectors, but the edges of the polygons, which are their only visible aspect, have no color." Personally it seems wrong to me and I've wasted a lot of time (yet again) on this stuff. This is not the first time I've had problems with anytooff making 3d input into 4OFFs. I am very concerned with the distinction between a point in Euclidian 4-space and a point in 3d-space as represented in 4 homogeneous coords. (I know it looks the same on the screen in geom view) But what if one wants to use anytooff to pipe it as input to some other program one is writing that might turn this into another geom, etc. Then having this 4OFF appear will be un-anticipated.
