Yes, but it might take a week or so since I just started to 
write a paper for a conference in Germany (deadline passed

Yes, I see the x,z and z on the coordinat axes. I also see all the
numbering (nodes, lines, planes etc.) if I use the .geo (parsed) file
format. There is just nothing displayed if I merge a gmsh-formated-file
($NOD ...stuff ...$ENDNOD and so on.)

Thank you so much! I started to implement an interface CARAT->gmsh into
our software. I will let you know a.s.a.p. about the behaviour of the
windows (98,NT) version. I will also set up a linux-system (suse7.1)
in a couple of weeks. So I might give some more input there (if you 
are not developing on that system?).
