delaunay [ OPTIONS ] < file.gts


This manual page documents briefly the delaunay command. This command constructs the constrained Delaunay triangulation of the input


This program follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with two dashes (`-’). A summary of options is included below.

-b, –hull
Do not keep convex hull.
-e, –noconst
Do not add constrained edges.
-S, –split
Split constraints (experimental).
-H, –holes
Remove holes from the triangulation.
-d, –duplicates
Remove duplicate vertices.
-r, –randomize
Shuffle input vertex list.
-c, –check
Check Delaunay property.
-f */FNAME, /–files=*/FNAME/
Generate evolution files.
-o, –conform
Generate conforming triangulation.
-s */N, /–steiner=*/N/
Maximum number of Steiner points for conforming triangulation (default is no limit).
-q */Q, /–quality=*/Q/
Set the minimum acceptable face quality.
-a */A, /–area=*/A/
Set the maximum acceptable face area.
-v, –verbose
Print statistics about the triangulation.
-h, –help
Display the help and exit.
