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

rowToPolygon(row, varargin)
```function poly = rowToPolygon(row, varargin)
%ROWTOPOLYGON  Create a polygon from a row vector
%
%   POLY = rowToPolygon(ROW)
%   Convert a 1-by-2*N row vector that concatenates all polygon vertex
%   coordinates into a N-by-2 array of coordinates.
%   Default ordering of coordinates in ROW is:
%   [X1 Y1 X2 Y2 X3 Y3 .... XN YN].
%
%   POLY = rowToPolygon(ROW, METHOD)
%   Specifies the method for concatenating coordinates. METHOS is one of:
%   'interlaced': default method, described above.
%   'packed': the vector ROW has format:
%   [X1 X2 X3 ... XN Y1 Y2 Y3 ... YN].
%
%   POLYS = rowToPolygon(ROWS, ...)
%   When ROWS is a NP-by-NV array containing the vertex coordinates of NP
%   polygons, returns a 1-by-NP cell array containing in each cell the
%   coordinates of the polygon.
%
%
%   Example
%   % Concatenate coordinates of a circle and draw it as a polygon
%     t = linspace (0, 2*pi, 200);
%     row = [cos(t) sin(t)];
%     poly = rowToPolygon(row, 'packed');
%     figure;drawPolygon(poly)
