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
