bdy - boundary curve finder
Geom *Bdy(Geom *, float prec);
Bdy() is a function which takes a geom as its argument. The geom is
then converted to a polylist, which is compressed (See plconsol(3).
Bdy() then counts the number of edges in the polylist used once and
only once, and returns a vector object containing these edges. The
precision, prec, is used to determine the maximum distance between
vertices which may be considered identical. If the vertices must have
identical coordinates, this value should be set to 0.0. It is
generally desirable to set the value somewhat higher to allow for
The vector object is always black.
The vector object is not a particularly compact representation of itself,
since it contains many 2-vertex segments which could be combined into a
Bdy() is part of the geomutil library; see geomutil(3) for information
on how to link your program with this library.
