Sorry for the delay, I had to rip the code out of another project and  
create a new one.

My code is BSD License. VTK Code is what ever VTK license uses. Quake  
code has a pretty liberal license. I think the author just wants to  
know who is using it.

I have it all in a project that can be downloaded from the following  


That includes my code, derived vtk code and the CMU Quake code.

If you need "nested" loop support let me know as I have some code that  
will do that also, just not as straight forward as a filter.

The really light documentation is in the header files. Let me know if  
you have any questions.

CAVEAT: The Quake code is really nice BUT ONLY WORKS IN 2D on the XY  
plane. My filter assumes the same thing.
