ConvertFile

VTKExamples/Java/IO/ConvertFile

Description

This example demonstrates how to read a file and then write it to a different type of file.

In this example, we read a vtp file and write a ply file, but simply by changing the reader/writer classes instantiated, different behavior can be achieved.
