Point Inside a Polygon
I need to find whether a point is inside a 2D polygon or not. The
polygon is located arbitrarily in space. Hence, one will need (x,y,z)
coordinates of all the vertex to define it.
The solutions available (inpolygon by mathworks and inpoly by Darren
(file ex)) assume that the polygon is located in the XY plane. Hence
they are not directly useful for me.
Can anybody offer help here?

one possible solution might be
- project your polygon on x/y, x/z, and y/z
- use <inpolygon> for each slice

Hi. I am new to wxWidgets. I am doing my development work on MacOS X
version 10.5.6 using wx-2.8.9.
I'm trying to work with a shaped window. My window is a subclass of a
wxFrame. I need it to have a custom looking skin but also but
resizable, etc. I am using a "cap and stretch" approach to skinning.
I've accomplished this (so far looks and behaves pretty well), but
when I size the window over 1195 pixels wide, the drawing to the right
of this point is clipped - I get my custom skin and controls up to
that point, then white appears.
When I resize the...clipping in w-space
I just want to make sure I am clear on how clipping is done in
homogeneous space. In normalized device coordinates, points inside
the frustum are bounded by:
-1 <= x <= 1
-1 <= y <= 1
-1 <= z <= 1
So in projection space (before the perspective divide), 4D points
(x,y,z,w) inside the frustum are bounded by:
-w <= x <= w
-w <= y <= w
-w <= z <= w
So, for example, one frustum plane is: w = x
Now this is a plane in R^4 right? So the general plane equation in
Ax + By + Cz + Dw + E = 0
Then I just generalize the polygon edge/plane inters...Bugs in Maya 5.0 Polygonal Modeling?
I recently purchased Maya 5.0 Complete for Windows, and have been using it
to create some polygonal meshes. My standard method for constructing these
meshes primarily uses Extrude Edge, Append to Polygon Tool, Split Polygon
Tool, and Merge Edge Tool. While doing this, I've had some very frustrating
things happen that I believe to be bugs in Maya. Being new to the program,
I'm not positive that these are bugs or perhaps "features" of Maya that I'm
not properly handling. My questions to you all are:

I've had pretty good success using Camtasia to accomplish this, but
still certain video clips come out all black. I've tried disabling
the hardware accelerator but that didn't help any. Is there a better

try which will work?
Thanks in advance!!
The WMRecorder package would be good to try.

In the last 3 years i'v been developing an aritficial intelligence
I have already implemented a program in Visual Basic 6 that is able to
extract data patterns from row data.
It recieves input data wich is gattered through plugins. Then it
applies the pattern algorithm over this input and, if it finds any
pattern, it stores these patterns in memory.
If later data appears to belong to a specific pattern, then the
algorithm completes automatically this pattern, generating output.

I need a polygon clip (boolean operate is better) algorithm, it must
support self-intersections, and support both even-odd and nonzero

modification and extend) , but I can't get the original paper.
Is there anyone can give me a paper of Vatti Clipping? Or, can suggest
me another algorithm.

I'm fairly new at programming in Fortran and still climbing the

such as ways to optimize it or make it more concise. Are there faster
ways to do this? Also, if you see any 'bad' programming practices
please let me know. Your time is greatly appreciated.

Does anyone know of a fast test for determining if a polygon
intersects an ellipsoid? I have most of the basic tests, i.e.
plane/ellipsoid, line/ellipsoid, but I can't seem to get this one for
the case when the polygon completely circumscribes the ellipsoid (no
line intersections but a planar intersection). Do I need to find the
ellipse of intersection? Is this easy to derive?
