This is a subprogram of XR95 compiled for separate release. It allows you to draw the habit of a crystal after giving the indices of the planes (hkl) and their distances from the origin. This program will remain a separate compilation for the near future , because at the moment I cannot implement it into XR95 itself, due to the existing DOS-barrier for static variables.
If you could create some nice-looking crystal shapes with this program, please send me some input files (*.ind). At a later stage I plan to implement VRML output. (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) Then you could put your shapes into your homepages for browsing with a 3D-viewer. This would offer many more possibilities for the resulting graphics, such as a real shading and transparency.
Check also my Java applets JShape and JCrystalApplet and my Java program JCrystal.
