Implementation notes

The applet is written in Java 1.0. I've tested it with Netscape 3 and 4, Internet Explorer 4 and appletviewer 1.0 and 1.1 under Irix, Digital Unix, Solaris, Windows 95 and NT, and MacOS. It even runs on my 1991 vintage Mac IIsi at home!

You can look at the source code if you wish, though it's not very tidy at present because I'm still developing the system. You can copy the code and modify it for your own purposes if you want, just let me know if you do.

The convex hull applet started life as a little applet that allows you to interactively rotate the logo of the School of Computer Science and Engineering.
