[vtkusers] Deleting Cells from a vtkPolyData object

Hello Everyone,

         Can someone give me a pointer to what the "right" way to remove 
cells from a vtkPolyData object is...  I've tried the 
vtkPolyData::DeleteCell(int cellId) method, but it doesn't seem to really 
do anything in my case (I'm probably just using it wrong)  Do I need to 
call DeleteCells() after calling DeleteCell(int cellId)?  What about 
BuildCells(), when should this be called? I'm also a little confused about 
what the differences between DeleteCell(), RemoveCellReference() and 
RemoveReferenceToCell() are...  If anyone could help me out and clarify 
these things a little that would be great!

Thanks a lot,
