After some modifications works perfect with GK4 :)

Doesn't work with GK-coordinates (Cartesian). My output polygon is the same as input.

Works flawlessly. Thanks for modifying the code to read Cartesian co-ordinates.

Added ability to work in cartesian coordinates rather than geographic space; updated description and example on webpage.

Fixed a bug in input checks so input can be either row or column vectors. Also updates internal plot checks to plot in cartesian coordinates so can be used to check both geographic and x-y input.
