Nodal Point Coordinate Block

Purpose: Defines the nodal coordinates

1. Record:
Format:(1X,'   2','C',18X,I12,37X,I1)
Values: KEY, CODE,NUMNOD, FORMAT
Where: KEY    = 2
       CODE   = C
       NUMNOD = Number of nodes in this block
       FORMAT = Format indicator
                0  short format
                1  long format 
                2  binary format 

Following records (ascci, FORMAT=0 | 1):
 Short Format:(1X,'-1',I5,3E12.5)
 Long Format:(1X,'-1',I10,3E12.5)
 Values: KEY, NODE, X,Y,Z
 Where: KEY    = -1
       NODE   = node number
       X..    = coordinates

Following records (binary, FORMAT=2):
 Format:(int NCOMPS*float)
 int and float are ansi-c data-types
 Values:  NODE, X,Y,Z
 Where: 
       NODE   = node number
       X..    = coordinates
  
Last Record (only FORMAT=0 | 1 (ascii), omitted for FORMAT=2):
Format:(1X,'-3')
Values: KEY
