#88 PLY export bad header

Release 3.0
Assimp lib (91)

Both MeshLab and Blender require that I modify the header of a ply file written by ASSIMP in two places.

1) replace the following line
Created by Open Asset Import Library - http://assimp.sf.net (v3.0.1270)
comment Created by Open Asset Import Library - http://assimp.sf.net (v3.0.1270)

2) replace keyword vertex_indices with vertex_index. e.g.
property list uint uint vertex_indices
property list uint uint vertex_index

I can see that these problems persist in the current head.

Documentation for PLY format here

Great library and I'm really pleased to see the export functionality.
Many thanks.

    For vertex colouring, uchar red/green/blue instead of float r/g/b also seems to be more widely accepted.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I'd really appreciate it.
