Math::Vector::Real::Polyline - Algorithms related to polylines.
use Math::Vector::Real::Polyline; my $poly1 = Math::Vector::Polyline->new(@vectors1); my $poly2 = Math::Vector::Polyline->new(@vectors2); my $d = $poly1->dist_to_polyline(@poly2); printf "The distance between %s and %s is %f", $poly1, $poly2, $d;
This module implements several algorithms related to polygonal chains or polylines.
Note that the module can handle polylines in spaces of any dimension (not just 2D).
Creates a new polyline object.
Returns the square of the distance from the polyline to the given point.
Returns the square of the distance from the polyline to the segment with the given vertices.
Returns the square of the distance between both polylines.
