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

fillPolygon(varargin)
function varargout = fillPolygon(varargin)
%FILLPOLYGON Fill a polygon specified by a list of points
%
%   fillPolygon(POLY);
%   Fills the interior of the polygon specified by POLY. The boundary of
%   the polygon is not drawn, see 'drawPolygon' to do it.
%   POLY is a single [N*2] array.
%   If POLY contains NaN-couples, each portion between the [NaN;NaN] will
%   be filled separately.
%
%   fillPolygon(PX, PY);
%   Specifies coordinates of the polygon in separate arrays.
%
%
%   H = fillPolygon(...);
%   Also returns a handle to the created patch
