Brief instructions for the RWX helper program for inserting vertexes

WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?
I needed it to insert vertexes into an existing model and did not want to renumber all vertex references myself.
Example : If you want to split a quad into 2 smaller quads somewhere in the middle of the model, you will need 2 additional vertexes.
The program works only with vertex based shapes, it does not translate stuff like sphere, cone and cylinder!

Copy it anywhere to your HD. Extract / unzip the contents of the ZIP archive (it contains only the rwinsert.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
    Vertex  45 -.03  45 UV 30  0
#i2
    Vertex  45 -.03 -45 UV 30 30
    Vertex -45 -.03 -45 UV  0 30
    Quad 1 2 3 4
  ClumpEnd
The #i2 written in the 1st column tells rwinsert to insert two new vertexes in this place. Multiple insert points can be defined like that.
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 inserted vertexes.
This will be the result :
  ClumpBegin
    Vertex -45 -.03  45 UV  0  0
    Vertex  45 -.03  45 UV 30  0
Vertex 0 0 0
Vertex 0 0 0
    Vertex  45 -.03 -45 UV 30 30
    Vertex -45 -.03 -45 UV  0 30
    Quad 1 2 5 6
  ClumpEnd
The program tries to preserve the formatting and preserves comments.
