dpsimplify uses the recursive Douglas-Peucker line simplification algorithm to reduce the number of vertices in a polyline according to a specified tolerance. The algorithm is also know as Iterative Endpoint Fit algorithm. dpsimplify can handle polylines and polygones in 2d and higher dimensions.
The submission now contains another m-file (dpsimplify_octave.m) that has been slightly modified to run with GNU Octave.
[ps,ix] = dpsimplify(p,tol)
where p is a nxm matrix that contains n vertices in m dimensions.
