KnotPlot Resource Directory

The resource directory is where many of the support utilities and data needed by KnotPlot are located. These HTML pages for example are located in the sub-directory www and many file headers needed for DXF and Postscript output are located there.

The directory just above the resource directory is known as the KnotPlot home, which is the root directory for everything in the KnotPlot distributuion.
