   Deprecated: This routine has been superseded by the CSPICE routine
   cspice_latsrf. This routine is supported for purposes of backward
   compatibility only.

   CSPICE_LLGRID_PL02, given the planetocentric longitude and latitude
   values of a set of surface points on a specified target body, compute
   the corresponding rectangular coordinates of those points.  The
   target body's surface is represented by a triangular plate model
   contained in a type 2 DSK segment.

   For important details concerning this module's function, please refer to
   the CSPICE routine llgrid_pl02.



      handle      the DAS file handle of a DSK file open for read
                  access. This kernel must contain a type 2 segment
                  that provides a plate model representing the entire
                  surface of the target body.

      dladsc      the DLA descriptor of a DSK segment representing
                  the surface of a target body.

      npoints     is the number of longitude/latitude pairs in the array
                  of grid points `grid'.

      grid        an array of planetocentric longitude/latitude pairs
                  to be mapped to surface points on the target body.



                  are, respectively, the planetocentric longitude and
                  latitude of the ith grid point.

                  Units are radians.

   the call:

      cspice_llgrid_pl02, handle, dladsc, npoints, grid, spoints, plateIDs


      spoints     an array containing the rectangular (Cartesian)
                  coordinates of the surface points on the target body,
                  expressed relative to the body-fixed reference frame of
                  the target body, corresponding to the input grid points.

      plateIDs    an array of integer ID codes of the plates on which
                  the surface points are located. The ith plate ID
                  corresponds to the ith surface point. These ID codes can
                  be use to look up data associated with the plate, such
                  as the plate's vertices or outward normal vector.


   Any numerical results shown for this example may differ between
   platforms as the results depend on the SPICE kernels used as input
   and the machine specific arithmetic implementation.

  In the following example program, the file


   is a DSK file containing a type 2 segment that provides a plate model
   representation of the surface of Phobos.

   Find the surface points on a target body corresponding to a given
   planetocentric longitude/latitude grid.
