Hello List,

I write a software, wich should be capable to read and alter STL files. At
the moment it can read only the ASCII STL, but that is slow and painfull.
Could anyone give me a detailed description of the data structure of the
binary STL format? I would try to recreate the appropriate format.

Thanks in advance:
