SOURCE CODE AVAILABILITY
QuikGrid Home Page
Three source code packages are available:
The source code for the QuikGrid grid generation
and contouring source code as free software
has been available for quite some time under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as
published by the Free Software Foundation ( http://www.gnu.org).
This source code is available here (qgsorc05.zip: 30k). The files in this .zip file contain the C++ source code for the grid generator (called xpand) and contouring routine (called contour). Also included is a small demo program that demonstrates the use of the functions by generating a small grid and contouring a contour line. I have compiled and tested this code using Borland C++ under MS Windows and also under UNIX (Linux). I have also had reports that it compiles and works correctly using Microsoft VC. Version 2 reflects changes to allow it to run under UNIX. See the readme file for full details. Version 3 includes a description of the algorithm in the readme file. Version 4 corrects a bug in the grid generation code. Version 5 removes a comment from the readme.txt file that might be interpreted as limiting the scope of the Lesser General Public License.
Download this source file if you are only interested in the grid generation code and/or the contouring code. It has been compiled and used on a greater variety of compilers than the full source code to QuikGrid.
A Python implementation is available at https://github.com/ninowalker/quikgrid and http://code.google.com/p/quikgrid .
The core Xpand class and its dependencies are available for C# at https://github.com/ChristopherTotty/QuikGridCSharp.
Version 3 of the full source code for the entire QuikGrid
program, Version 5.4, is now available under the terms
of the GNU General Public License.
The changes between Version 2 and Version 3 of the source code are relatively slight. They reflect the changes to correct the problem with the default startup menu detailed here and documentation changes for the Help file and "About" box to reflect the phasing out of the perspectiveedge web site.
This source code is available here (qgsorcall03: 440k). The files in this .zip file include the C++ code, a copy of the Borland IDE file (quikgrid.ide) the help file documentation and my internals documentation. This was implemented and has been maintained using Borland C++ compilers, most recently version 5.0b (1996).
Stephen Ferrell has created a 64 bit version of QuikGrid
and re-implemented the Help facility with Microsoft HTML
The full source for this implementation is available here ( QuikGrid-build-5.4-x64-VisualStudio 2013).
It is also available from Steve's drop box account here.
The source for the Help facility is here.
