CGAL 5.3 - 3D Polyhedral Surface
CGAL::Polyhedron_3< Traits >::Vertex Class Reference

#include <CGAL/Polyhedron_3.h>


A vertex optionally stores a point and a reference to an incident halfedge that points to the vertex.

Type tags indicate whether these member functions are supported. Figure figurePolyOptionalMethods depicts the relationship between a halfedge and its incident halfedges, vertices, and facets. The circulator is assignable to the Halfedge_handle. The circulator is bidirectional if the halfedge provided to the polyhedron with the Items template argument provides a member function Halfedge::prev(), otherwise it is of the forward category.

void CGAL::Polyhedron_3< Traits >::Vertex::set_halfedge ( Halfedge_handle  h)

sets incident halfedge to h.

h is incident, i.e., h->vertex() == v.
