CGAL 4.7 - 2D Regularized Boolean Set-Operations

Each one of these functions computes the union of two given polygons p1 and p2. If the two given polygons overlap, it returns true, and places the resulting polygon in p. Otherwise, it returns false.

The signature of the function is

bool join(const Type1 & p1, const Type2 & p2, General_polygon_with_holes_2 & res);

Parameters

The types of the paramters of the join() function are any of the following combinations.

CGAL::do_intersect()
CGAL::intersection()
CGAL::difference()
CGAL::symmetric_difference()
