Assign Layers by Curve lengths

This RhinoScript assigns curves of different lengths to different layers allowing the user to specify the level of accuracy of measurement. I have used this script to create part counts for geodesic domes.

End If
realTotalLength = realTotalLength+realTempLineLength
strOutput = “The number of curve lengths is: “&(intCount+1)&”. The total lengths of members is: “&realTotalLength&”. These lengths, in ascending order, are: “
arrSort = Rhino.SortNumbers(arrLengths)
For Each i In arrSort
strOutput = strOutput&CStr(i)&”, “
If i<(UBound(arrSort)-1) Then
realTotalLength = arrSort(i)+arrSort(i+1)
End If
Rhino.TextOut strOutput
