Geometry library for matlab. Performs geometric computations on points, lines, circles, polygons...

edgeToPolyline(edge, N)
function poly = edgeToPolyline(edge, N)
%EDGETOPOLYLINE Convert an edge to a polyline with a given number of segments
%
%   POLY = edgeToPolyline(EDGE, N)
%   
%   Example
%     edge = [10 20 60 40];
%     poly = edgeToPolyline(edge, 10);
%     drawEdge(edge, 'lineWidth', 2);
%     hold on
%     drawPoint(poly);
%     axis equal;
