##     X x-coordinates of the patch
##     Y y-coordinates of the patch
##     C colour code as given by plot

  ## well as long as gnuplot has no fill function ...
  ## we do it ourselves ....
  ## maybe this looks really ugly if we have to fill
  ## lots of triangles which should represent a polygon
  ## but this approach has an excellent effort/work relationship 
  ## (maybe we are a little to economic here ;-)) ...
  ## improveme!!!!
  ## ok we assume our patch looks like this:
  ##
  ##      2+-------------------+3
  ##       |                   |
  ##       |                   |
  ##       |                   |
  ##       |                   |
  ##       |                   |
  ##      1+-------------------+4
  ##
  ## and we want to have something like this:
  ##
  ##      2+-------------------+3
  ##       | | | | | | | | | | |
  ##       | | | | | | | | | | |
  ##       | | | | | | | | | | |
  ##       | | | | | | | | | | |
  ##      1+-------------------+4
  ##
  ## for triangles we want to have only the grids 1-2-3

  ## so we create a spacing from 1:4 and 2:3 using 1/increments
  increments=50;
  X_14=x(1):(x(4)-x(1))/increments:x(4);
  X_23=x(2):(x(3)-x(2))/increments:x(3);
  ## the same for Y
  Y_14=y(1):(y(4)-y(1))/increments:y(4);
  Y_23=y(2):(y(3)-y(2))/increments:y(3);
  ## ok now assume x(1)==x(4) then the :: wouldn't generate anything
  if (length(X_14)==0)
    X_14=x(1)*ones(1,increments+1);
  end
  if (length(X_23)==0)
    X_23=x(2)*ones(1,increments+1);
  end
  if (length(Y_14)==0)
    Y_14=y(1)*ones(1,increments+1);
  end
  if (length(Y_23)==0)
    Y_23=y(2)*ones(1,increments+1);
  end
  
  X=[X_23;X_14];
  Y=[Y_23;Y_14];
  idx=2:2:increments+1;
  X(:,idx) = flipud(X(:,idx));
