MGH_LINE_COEFF

Name


  MGH_LINE_COEFF

Description


    Given a pair of points in an X-Y plane, return the coefficients
    of the equation ax + by + c = 0 defining a line through the
    points.
    This is a utility function used in describing polygon-clipping
    operations. See MGH_POLYFILLG.

Calling Sequence


    result = mgh_mgh_line_coeff(x0, y0, x1, y1)

Positional Parameters


  x0,y0,x1,y1 (input, numeric scalar)
    Coordinates of points (x0,y0) and (x1,y1)

Return Value


    The function returns a 3-element numeric vector containing the
    coefficients of the line. The sign of the coefficents is such
    that quantity s = (ax + by + c) increases to the right of the
    vector (x0,y0) -> (x1,y1)
