project_cylinder - project point, line or triangle files on a cylinder
project_cylinder [-cx DOUBLE] [-cy DOUBLE] [-cz DOUBLE] [-dx DOUBLE] [-dy DOUBLE] [-dz DOUBLE] [-r DOUBLE|--radius DOUBLE] [-?|-h|--help]
project projects point, line or triangle files on a cylinder and unwrap it. The parameters of the projections are: 'c' (cx cy cz), a point on the axis of the cylinder; 'd' (dx dy dz), a vector pointing in the direction of the axis and 'r', the radius of the cylinder. It takes its input from the standard input and returns the result to the standard output.
return a file in 2D (2) or 3D (3: default)

y coordinate of a point on the axis of the cylinder (default: 0)
z coordinate of a point on the axis of the cylinder (default: 0)
x coordinate of the axis vector (default: 0)
y coordinate of the axis vector (default: 0)
z coordinate of the axis vector (default: 1)
radius of the cylinder
