+Slicing
+-------
+
+An intersection of the mesh with a plane can be calculated using the -s
+option. The plane is described by the slice file containing points
+in the following format:
+
+x y z [zoff]
+
+If the zoff value is present, it is added to the z coordinate. This can
+be used to manually adjust coordinates obtained from the mesh.
+
+The output is a set of unconnected line segments, in Gnuplot format.
