The Polygon Clipper (based on the gpc-library) is used to performe algebraic operations on two polygons.

Given two arbitrary polygons (which may self intersect, may contain holes, may be constructed of several contours) the Polygon Clipper is used to calculate the resulting polygon for the operations diff, union, AND, XOR.

All polygons are specified as structures as described in the example.m-file.

Version Published Release Notes

In the version from August 2006 I accidently deleted one line from the mexfile, which created a serious memory leak. This has been fixed in this version and anyone using the older version is advised to update.
