   Variable  I/O  Description 
   --------  ---  -------------------------------------------------- 
   handle     I   DSK file handle. 
   dladsc     I   DLA descriptor. 
   start      I   Start index. 
   room       I   Amount of room in output array. 
   n          O   Number of plates returned. 
   plates     O   Array containing plates. 


   handle         is the handle of a DSK file containing a type 2 
                  segment from which data are to be fetched. 
   dladsc         is the DLA descriptor associated with the segment 
                  from which data are to be fetched.  
   start          is the ID of the first plate to be fetched from the
                  segment designated by `handle' and `dladsc'. The ID
                  of a plate is its ordinal position within the
                  segment. Plate IDs range from 1 to NP, where NP is
                  the number of plates in the segment.
                  Note that Fortran-style 1-based indexing is used for
                  plate IDs because these IDs must be consistent with
                  the IDs used in DSK files, across all languages
                  supported by SPICE.
   room           is the number of plates that can fit in the output
                  `plates' array: the output array must be large enough
                  to hold at least 3*room integer values.


   n              is the number of plates fetched to the output 
                  array `plates'. `n' is normally in the range  
                     1 : min( NP, room )

                  If an error occurs on the call, `n' is undefined.
   plates         is a contiguous set of plates. The returned
                  plates are arranged in order of increasing plate
                  ID. The IDs of the returned plates range from



                     start + n - 1 

                  Each plate consists of three vertex indices. The
                  correspondence of elements of `plates' with the
                  elements of the set of plates contained in the
                  segment is:
                     plates[0][0]      plate_set[start][0]
                     plates[0][1]      plate_set[start][1]
                     plates[0][2]      plate_set[start][2]
                       ...             ... 
                     plates[n-1][0]    plate_set[start+n-1][0]
                     plates[n-1][1]    plate_set[start+n-1][1] 
                     plates[n-1][2]    plate_set[start+n-1][2] 
                  If an error occurs on the call, `plates' is

   1) If the input handle is invalid, the error will be diagnosed by 
      routines in the call tree of this routine.  
   2) If a file read error occurs, the error will be diagnosed by 
      routines in the call tree of this routine. 
   3) If the input DLA descriptor is invalid, the effect of this 
      routine is undefined. The error *may* be diagnosed by routines 
      in the call tree of this routine, but there are no guarantees. 
   4) If `room' is non-positive, the error SPICE(VALUEOUTOFRANGE) 
      is signaled. 
   5) If `start' is less than 1 or greater than the number of plates 
      in the segment, the error SPICE(INDEXOUTOFRANGE) is signaled.

   This routine enables SPICE-based user applications to rapidly 
   fetch the plate data from a specified type 2 DSK segment. Using 
   a large output array generally improves efficiency. 


   The numerical results shown for this example may differ across 
   platforms. The results depend on the SPICE kernels used as 
   input, the compiler and supporting libraries, and the machine  
   specific arithmetic implementation.  

   1) Look up all the vertices associated with each plate 
      of the model contained in a specified type 2 segment. For each 
      plate, display the plate's vertices and normal vector. 
      For this example, we'll show the context of this look-up: 
      opening the DSK file for read access, traversing a trivial, 
      one-segment list to obtain the segment of interest.

            Close the kernel.  This isn't necessary in a stand-
            alone program, but it's good practice in subroutines
            because it frees program and system resources.
