The Wolf Book, pp441-445 has an implementation which is C-like and unreliable for corner cases. The algorithm is the same one you cite: does a ray from the test point cross edges an even or odd number of times? If odd, it's an interior point.

My take on the OO issues you raise derives from the hierarchy of 0- to 1- to 2-dimensional geometry. Interior and exterior are properties of of each particular polygon, so I suppose that $poly->is_interior($point) is natural. A Line has-a pair of Points to define it, so Point methods are available to it. A Polygon has-a list of Points as vertices, or equivalently a list of Lines with common endpoints. Point and Line methods are available to Polygon.

After Compline,

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
