[xs,ys] = cint(x1,y1,x2,y2) finds intersection points of the curves defined by straight lines between the length(x1) points in the plane, (x1,y1), and the length(x2) points in the plane (x2,y2).
The function essentially solves
x1(m) + t*diff(x1)(m) = x2(n) + s*diff(x2)(n);
y1(m) + t*diff(y1)(m) = y2(n) + s*diff(y2)(n);
for each combination of line segments and returns
xs = x1 + t*dx1;
ys = y1 + t*dy1;
for all t for which 0<t<1 and 0<s<1 corresponding to an intersection.
For efficiency the function uses bsxfun to construct the length(x1) x length(x2) matrices involved in the calculation.
Points shared by the two arrays (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) are also returned.
