Returns a 3-by-ni-by-nj array whose 0th entry is x, 1th entry is y, and 2th entry is z. z is ni-by-nj. x and y, if present, must be the same shape. If not present, integer ranges will be used to create an equally spaced coordinate grid in x and y. The function which scales the ``topography'' of z(x,y) is potentially useful apart from plwf.
For example, the xyz array used by plwf can be converted from a quadrilateral mesh plotted using plf to a polygon list plotted using plfp like this:
The resulting array xyz is 3-by-(4*(nj-1)*(ni-1)). xyz[0:3,4*i:4*(i+1)] are the clockwise coordinates of the vertices of cell number i.
