#include <CGAL/General_polygon_2.h>

Definition

The class General_polygon_2 models the concept GeneralPolygon_2.

It represents a simple general-polygon. It is parameterized with the type ArrTraits that models the concept ArrangementDirectionalXMonotoneTraits_2. The latter is a refinement of the concept ArrangementXMonotoneTraits_2. In addition to the requirements of the concept ArrangementXMonotoneTraits_2, a model of the concept ArrangementDirectionalXMonotoneTraits_2 must support the following functions:

• Given an $$x$$-monotone curve, construct its opposite curve.
• Given an $$x$$-monotone curve, compare its two endpoints lexicographically.

This class supports a few convenient operations in addition to the requirements that the concept GeneralPolygon_2 lists.

This operator exports a general polygon to the output stream out.

An ASCII and a binary format exist. The format can be selected with the CGAL modifiers for streams, set_ascii_mode and set_binary_mode respectively. The modifier set_pretty_mode can be used to allow for (a few) structuring comments in the output. Otherwise, the output would be free of comments. The default for writing is ASCII without comments.

The number of curves of the outer boundary is exported followed by the curves themselves in counterclockwise order.

template<class ArrTraits >
 std::istream & operator>> ( std::istream & in, CGAL::General_polygon_2< ArrTraits > & P )
related

This operator imports a general polygon from the input stream in.

An ASCII and a binary format exist. The stream detects the format automatically and can read both.

The format consists of the number of points of the outer boundary followed by the points themselves in counterclockwise order, followed by the number of holes, and for each hole, the number of points of the outer boundary is followed by the points themselves in clockwise order.
