I can't read perl to save myself :-)  And I can't run that particular 
app without installing the math polygon library manually from CPAN so I 
couldn't get it to spit out the usage instructions.  But I did dig this 
section out of the program which describes the polygon format.

I assume that "1" and the "END" mark the beginning and end of sections.  
Does this mean that a subsequent polygon section would begin and end 
with "2" and "END" respectively?  And finally is it essential that all 
polygon files be broken into sections or do you allow a file with only a 
single polygon to omit the section header and footer?

I'm unsure how to get a java.text.DecimalFormat pattern to match the 
above format but I'll keep looking into it.
