CGAL 4.13  2D Arrangements

#include <CGAL/Arr_accessor.h>
Arr_accessor
provides an access to some of the private Arrangement
functions. Users may use these functions to achieve more efficient programs when they have the exact topological information required by the specialized functions.
It is however highly recommended to be very careful when using the accessor functions that modify the arrangement. As we have just mentioned, these functions have very specific requirement on their input on one hand, and perform no preconditions on the other hand, so providing incorrect topological input may invalidate the arrangement.

Creation  
Arr_accessor (Arrangement_2 &arr)  
constructs an accessor attached to the given arrangement arr .  
Accessing the Notification Functions  
void  notify_before_global_change ()

) 
inserts the curve c
into the arrangement, such that both c
's endpoints correspond to existing arrangement vertices, given by pred1>target()
and pred2>target()
.

. The output flag new_face
indicates whether a new face has been created following the insertion of the new curve.
pred1>target()
and pred2>target()
are associated with c
's endpoints and that if a new face is created, then is_inside_new_face (pred1, pred2, c)
is true
. Halfedge_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::insert_from_vertex_ex  (  const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c, 
Halfedge_handle  pred,  
Vertex_handle  v,

and v
. The function returns a handle for one of the new halfedges directed from pred>target()
to v
.
pred>target()
and v
are associated with c
's endpoints and that and that v
has no incident edges. Halfedge_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::insert_in_face_interior_ex  (  const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c, 
Face_handle  f,  
Vertex_handle  v1,  
Vertex_handle  v2,  
Comparison_result  res  
) 
inserts the curve c
as a new hole (inner component) of the face f
, connecting the two isolated vertices v1
and v2
.
res
is the comparison result between these two endvertices. The function returns a handle for one of the new halfedges corresponding to the inserted curve, directed from v1
to v2
.
v1
and v2
are associated with c
's endpoints, that they lie of f
's interior and that and that they have no incident edges. void CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::insert_isolated_vertex  (  Face_handle  f,

Halfedge_handle  pred2,  
const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c  
)  const 
determines whether a new halfedge we are about to create, which is to be associated with the curve c
and directed from pred1>target()
to pred2>target()
, lies on the inner CCB of the new face that will be created, introducing this new edge.
pred1>target()
and pred2>target()
are associated with c
's endpoints. pred1
and pred2
belong to the same connected component, such that a new face is created by connecting pred1>target()
and pred2>target()
. Halfedge_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::modify_edge_ex  (  Halfedge_handle  e, 
const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c  
) 
modifies the \( x\)monotone curve associated with the edge e
(the curve c
may be geometrically different than the one currently associated with e
).
The function returns a handle to the modified edge (same as e
).
c
is disjoint from all existing arrangement vertices and edges. Vertex_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::modify_vertex_ex  (  Vertex_handle  v,

Face_handle  f2,  
Ccb_halfedge_circulator  hole  
) 
moves the given hole from the interior of the face f1
inside the face f2
.
hole
is currently contained in f1
and should be moved to f2

Face_handle  f2,  
Vertex_handle  v  
) 
moves the given isolated vertex from the interior of the face f1
inside the face f2
.
v
is indeed an isolated vertex currently contained in f1
and should be moved to f2
. bool CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::point_is_in  (  const Point_2 &  p, 
Halfedge_const_handle  he  
)  const 
determines whether a given point lies within the region bounded by a boundary of the connected component that he
belongs to.
Note that if the function returns true
, then p
is contained within he>face()
(but not on its boundary), or inside one of the holes inside this face, or it may coincide with an isolated vertex in this face.
void CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::relocate_in_new_face  (  Halfedge_handle  he  ) 
relocates all holes and isolated vertices to their proper position immediately after a face has split due to the insertion of a new halfedge, namely after insert_at_vertices_ex()
was invoked and indicated that a new face has been created.
he
is the halfegde returned by insert_at_vertices_ex()
, such that he>twin()>face
is the face that has just been split and he>face()
is the newly created face.
Face_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::remove_edge_ex  (  Halfedge_handle  he, 
bool  remove_source = true , 

bool  remove_target = true 

) 
removes the edge he
from the arrangement, such that if the edge removal causes the creation of a new hole, he>target()
lies on the boundary of this hole.
The flags remove_source
and remove_target
indicate whether the endvertices of he
should be removed as well, in case they have no other incident edges. If the operation causes two faces to merge, the merged face is returned. Otherwise, the face to which the edge was incident is returned.
Halfedge_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::split_edge_ex  (  Halfedge_handle  he, 
const Point_2 &  p,  
const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c1,  
const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c2  
)

, and associate the xmonotone curves c1
and c2
with the resulting edges, such that c1
connects he>source()
with p
and c2
connects p
with he>target()
.
The function return a handle to the split halfedge directed from he>source()
to the split point p
.
c1
and c2
correspond to p
and to he
's endvertices, as indicated above. Halfedge_handle CGAL::Arr_accessor< Arrangement >::split_edge_ex  (  Halfedge_handle  he, 
Vertex_handle  v,  
const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c1,  
const X_monotone_curve_2 &  c2  
) 
splits a given edge into two at by the vertex v
, and associate the xmonotone curves c1
and c2
with the resulting edges, such that c1
connects he>source()
with v
and c2
connects v
with he>target()
.
The function return a handle to the split halfedge directed from he>source()
to v

has no incident edges.
