Calculates the extents of a group of objects (selected according to select_addr()) and returns an array: [xmin,xmax],[ymin,ymax].
@extents = $drw->OrthExtents(\%opts);
Alias to OrthExtents() which returns a polyline-form array of points
(counter clockwise from lower-left) describing a rectangle.
@rec = $drw->getExtentsRec(\%opts);
Gets the orthographic extents of the object at $addr. Returns
[\@xpts,\@y_pts] (leaving you to sort through them and find which
is min or max.)
@extents = $drw->EntOrthExtents($addr);
List of hash references containing code references to reduce
duplication and facilitate natural flow (rather than ifififif
Planar Geometry Methods
Intended as any-object offset function (not easy).
$dist is negative to offset outward
Transforms a polyline with a nubbin into a ray (line with direction.)
$line_addr = $drw->pline_to_ray($pline_addr);
Trims two lines to their intersection.
$drw->trim_both($addr1, $addr2, $tol, \@keep_ends);
Switch between coordinate system representations.
Change the objects coordinates into the object coordinate system.
Both of these are relatively quick. A simple test shows that one point
can be taken back and forth at about 2KHz, so dont be afraid to use
Change the objects coordinates into the world coordinate system.
Puts the object in the wcs, zeros all z-coordinates and deletes the
normal vector. Note that this is fine for projecting polylines and
lines, but may not be what you want if you are trying to make a circle
into an ellipse (at least not yet.)
Non-OO internal-use functions.
Returns the x,y, and z axes for the ocs described by @normal. These
will have arbitrary lengths.
@local_axes = _ocs_axes(@normal);
Returns the x,y, and z axes for the world coordinate system in terms of
@trs_axes = _wcs_axes(@ocs_axes);
