user redefinable functions

   see user2_r.c for qh_fprintf, qh_malloc, qh_free

   see README.txt  see COPYING.txt for copyright information.

   see libqhull_r.h for data structures, macros, and user-callable functions.

   see user_eg.c, user_eg2.c, and unix.c for examples.

   see user.h for user-definable constants

      use qh_NOmem in mem_r.h to turn off memory management
      use qh_NOmerge in user.h to turn off facet merging
      set qh_KEEPstatistics in user.h to 0 to turn off statistics

   This is unsupported software.  You're welcome to make changes,
   but you're on your own if something goes wrong.  Use 'Tc' to
   check frequently.  Usually qhull will report an error if
   a data structure becomes inconsistent.  If so, it also reports
   the last point added to the hull, e.g., 102.  You can then trace
   the execution of qhull with "T4P102".

   Please report any errors that you fix to qhull@qhull.org

   Qhull-template is a template for calling qhull from within your application

   if you recompile and load this module, then user.o will not be loaded
   from qhull.a

   you can add additional quick allocation sizes in qh_user_memsizes

   if the other functions here are redefined to not use qh_print...,
   then io.o will not be loaded from qhull.a.  See user_eg_r.c for an
   example.  We recommend keeping io.o for the extra debugging
   information it supplies.
