input vertex data file format
 
Does anyone know where I can find a sample input file for reading in vertex data. The great gambit tutorial guide offers no such reference, but it does offer advice on how to select said data file. Anyway whenever I try to imput my data file it says "error reading number of points per curve and number of curves." I have tried putting those two number on the first two rows of my data file, but it still gave me the error. Thanks for reading.

Re: input vertex data file format
 
The Vertex data file has to be of the following format,

x-coordinate y-coordinate z-coordinate x-coordinate y-coordinate z-coordinate .............. ................... .......................

For a 2d problem you have to give zeroes for z-coordinates. Below is a sample vertex data file fo 2d, e.g.

-45.932 -90.861 0 -49.209 -77.373 0 -36.565 -72.305 0 30.387 -82.540 0 89.672 -33.925 0
