3D Convex Hull algorithm in Java

The algorithm reads a file containing a list of 3D points, constructs their convex hull, and writes it to an output file using the OFF file format. OFF files can be viewed using Geomview avaliable at The algorithm used to construct hull is an implementation of the point insertion algorithm given in Joseph O'Rourke's "Computational Geometry in C".
