## Function Documentation

template<typename Kernel >
 Comparison_result CGAL::compare_distance_to_point ( const CGAL::Point_2< Kernel > & p, const CGAL::Point_2< Kernel > & q, const CGAL::Point_2< Kernel > & r )

compares the distances of points q and r to point p.

returns CGAL::SMALLER, iff q is closer to p than r, CGAL::LARGER, iff r is closer to p than q, and CGAL::EQUAL otherwise.

template<typename Kernel >
 Comparison_result CGAL::compare_distance_to_point ( const CGAL::Point_3< Kernel > & p, const CGAL::Point_3< Kernel > & q, const CGAL::Point_3< Kernel > & r )

compares the distances of points q and r to point p.

returns CGAL::SMALLER, iff q is closer to p than r, CGAL::LARGER, iff r is closer to p than q, and CGAL::EQUAL otherwise.
