geomutil - various geometry utilities (introduction)


The geomutil library contains a collection of miscellaneous geometric utility functions:

AnyToPL() - convert any geom to a polylist
PLCombine() - combine two polylists into one
PLConsol() - consolidate vertices in a polylist
Bdy() - generate the boundary (edge) of a geom

Each function has its own manual page which gives usage details.

To link your program with the geomutil library you should specify -lgeomutil followed by the usual list of OOGL libraries, as in

cc -L${LIBDIR} prog.c -lgeomutil \
-lstubdraw -lgeom -lvect -lpolylist -lquad \
-lmesh -lbezier -linst -ltlist -llist -lstub \
-lgeom -loogl -lbbox -lshade -lcolor -l3d -lm
