// PLUGIN NAME: pointOnMeshInfo v1.0
// FILE: pointOnMeshInfoNode.cpp
// DESCRIPTION: -Defines "pointOnMeshInfo" node.
//              -Please see readme.txt for full details.
// AUTHOR: QT
// REFERENCES: -This plugin is based off of the `pointOnSurface` MEL command and "pointOnSurfaceInfo" node.
//             -The pointOnSubdNode.cpp plugin example from the Maya API Devkit was also used for reference.
//             -The MEL script AEpointOnSurfaceInfoTemplate.mel was referred to for the AE template MEL script
//              that accompanies the pointOnMeshInfo node.
// LAST UPDATED: Oct. 11th, 2001.
// COMPILED AND TESTED ON: Maya 4.0 on Windows
