CGAL::ch_bykat
Definition
The function ch_bykat generates the counterclockwise sequence of extreme
points from a given set of input points.
#include <CGAL/ch_bykat.h>
template <class InputIterator, class OutputIterator, class Traits>

OutputIterator

ch_bykat ( 
InputIterator first,
InputIterator beyond,
OutputIterator result,
Traits ch_traits = Default_traits) 

 
generates the counterclockwise sequence of extreme points
of the points in the range [first,beyond).
The resulting sequence is placed starting at position
result, and the pasttheend iterator for the resulting
sequence is returned. It is not specified at which point the
cyclic sequence of extreme points is cut into a linear sequence.
Precondition:  The source range [first,beyond) does not contain
result. 

The default traits class Default_traits is the kernel in which the
type ForwardIterator::value_type is defined.
Requirements
 InputIterator::value_type and
OutputIterator::value_type
are equivalent to Traits::Point_2.
 Traits defines the following subset of types from
the concept ConvexHullTraits_2 and their corresponding member
functions that return instances of these types:
 Traits::Point_2,
 Traits::Less_signed_distance_to_line_2,
 Traits::Left_turn_2,
 Traits::Less_xy_2,
 Traits::Equal_2.

Implementation
This function implements the nonrecursive variation of
Eddy's algorithm [Edd77] described in [Byk78].
This algorithm requires $$O(n h) time
in the worst case for $$n input points with $$h extreme points.
