     Thanks Mark . I have taken the above file and our systems people have
placed it under /usr/local.
    I admit that I am at an early stage in my comprehension
of what Geomview will do for us . We simply want to view 2D/3D FE MEshes
produced by our code , together with zooming , rotations , aninmation 
, display contour fill for physical quatities ( eg. Stresses , Displacements)

    It is vitally important to know the answers to the following :
        Does Geomview require an INPUT file with all the attributes 
( topologies etc.) of the mesh to have been written by us ?? Where do we
find a definition of this file ? Then can we perform those operations cited 
above ??

   Alternatively can we call Geomview modules directly from our ( Fortran) 
 FE code ?  ( eg. display a polygon - fill it - hide it etc .etc. )  

             With thanks,    George
