Brief instructions for the RWX helper program for deleting vertexes

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
I needed it to delete vertexes into an existing model and did not want to renumber all vertex references myself.

DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL
Click the link to the left to download rwdelete.zip
Copy it anywhere to your HD. Extract / unzip the contents of the ZIP archive (it contains only the rwdelete.exe file) into any folder on your HD, best into one where your PATH points to.
SETUP AND USAGE
No setup required, but the RWX file needs to be prepared like this (example):
  ClumpBegin
    Vertex -45 -.03  45 UV  0  0
#d  Vertex  45 -.03  45 UV 30  0
    Vertex  45 -.03 -45 UV 30 30
    Vertex -45 -.03 -45 UV  0 30
    Quad 1 2 3 4
  ClumpEnd
The #d written in the 1st column tells rwdelete to remove this vertex. Multiple vertexes can be deleted in one run.
Now start the program (Win32 Console / DOS box) with the name of the prepared RWX file. It will make a backup copy of the original RWX and create a new RWX with the deleted vertexes.
This will be the result :
  ClumpBegin
    Vertex -45 -.03  45 UV  0  0
    Vertex  45 -.03 -45 UV 30 30
    Vertex -45 -.03 -45 UV  0 30
# del   Quad 1 2 5 6
  ClumpEnd
The program tries to preserve the formatting and preserves comments.
