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

polygonSubcurve(poly, t0, t1)
function res = polygonSubcurve(poly, t0, t1)
%POLYGONSUBCURVE Extract a portion of a polygon
%
%   POLY2 = polygonSubcurve(POLYGON, POS0, POS1)
%   Create a new polyline, by keeping vertices located between positions
%   POS0 and POS1, and adding points corresponding to positions POS0 and
%   POS1 if they are not already vertices.
%
%   Example
%   Nv = 100;
%   poly = circleAsPolygon([10 20 30], Nv);
%   poly2 = polygonSubcurve(poly, 15, 65);
%   drawCurve(poly2);
