RealSols.maple
 
The Maple list of real solutions.

grab.perl
 
perl script for parsing the alphaCertified output file
realDistinctSolns.

sort.maple
 
Sorts the solutions according to the number of critical points
under the coordinate projections of the 2,2curve.

rst.maple
 
r00.maple,
r22.maple,
r04.maple,
r40.maple,
r44.maple. These draw the (2,2) curve and
crudely draw the workspace of the different mechanisms.



 
These next files draw certain solutions, with the number
17,28,49,104,171 representing the index of the solution
in the list points. The first three are complete, and
were used to create the graphics in our paper, as well as
the animations above.

171.maple
 
 The only viable solution. One component of its workspace curve
contains all 9 control points and is a simple closed curve.

104.maple
 
 The workspace is connected, but the curve is not simple closed.

28.maple
 
 The workspace is disconnected with the control points lying on
different components.

17.maple
49.maple
 
 These represent early attempts to draw mechanisms, ones which
were not sufficiently interesting to warrant further development
