Geometry::Primitive - Primitive Geometry Entities


Geometry::Primitive is a device and library agnostic system for representing geometric entities such as points, lines and shapes. It provides simple objects and many convenience methods you would expect from a simple geometry library.

    use Geometry::Primitive::Point;
    my $foo = Geometry::Primitive::Point->new(x => 1, y => 3);


I'm not a math guy. I hate math. I will likely learn a lot in the process of making this library. If you are a math person you will probably look at this and find many things missing or wrong. Patches are encouraged. I will likely find that I've done something completely wrong having taken geometry over 10 years ago. C'est la vie.



All of the entities in this library support serialization via MooseX::Storage. This is primarily to support serialization in consumers of this library, but may be useful for other purposes. All classes are set to JSON format and File IO.

Many of the ideas here come from my experience using the Cairo library.
