Many of you are refering me to he Mathematica's Delaunay interface shortcut to qh-math in: http://www.thesa.com/software/qhull/ This is a shortcut that eventually re-routes a person to: http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/1160. Unfortunately, the "qh-math: A MathLink Interface To Qhull's Delaunay Triangulation" contained in this last web site is not self-contained. The user needs to obtain the source code to Qhull version 2.6, which is not longer available at the http://www.geom.umn.edu/ (the "official website"). It also requires appropriate development tools for the platform on which the user will be running qh-math. The development tool requires an ANSI C compiler and a linker for creating libraries. In a nutshell; the above program is too difficult to use for the average Mathematica user! A simple Mathematica notebook containing the necessary code, and an example illustrating how the code can be applied to real world data, would be a lot more "tangible" to the average Mathematica user. If you have such a notebook please, make it available to everyone via this MathUse Platform or, send it to me at: gilmar.rodriguez at nwfwmd.state.fl.us as an attachment, with your reply e-mail message. Thank you for your feedback, and your help!
