Andrew Maclean and I have successfully revived 112 examples from the
VTK Book.  This covers all figures that were generated by VTK code. A
few figures were generated with "mystery" codes and are not included.

Most of the figures were created by Tcl scripts and  30 C++ programs.
Andrew also converted many of the figure examples to Python.

All of the figure examples are part of the VTKExamples repo and can be
viewed here:

Each Book example has an image that is regression tested every night.
Also, a link to the original code is provided. Most of the scripts
were deleted from the repo many years ago.

The VTKExamples https://lorensen.github.io/VTKExamples/site/ now contains:

C++ examples: 948
CSharp examples: 121
Python examples: 161
Java examples: 18
Total examples: 1248

This effort means that the "once  lost"  figure examples will live on.

Old Guys Rule!
