CGAL 4.7  2D Regularized Boolean SetOperations

#include <CGAL/Polygon_with_holes_2.h>
The class Polygon_with_holes_2
models the concept GeneralPolygonWithHoles_2
.
It represents a linear polygon with holes. It is parameterized with two types (Kernel
and Container
) that are used to instantiate the type Polygon_2<Kernel,Container>
. The latter is used to represents the outer boundary and the boundary of the holes (if any exist).

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 points of the outer boundary is exported followed by the points themselves in counterclockwise order. Then, the number of holes is exported, and for each hole, the number of points on its outer boundary is exported followed by the points themselves in clockwise order.

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.
