Determines if a point is on or left of the vector described by two other points.

A simple test function to determine the position of one (or more) points relative to a vector spanned by two points.

Usage
on(x1, y1, x2, y2, x0, y0, eps = 1e-16)
left(x1, y1, x2, y2, x0, y0, eps = 1e-16)
Arguments
x1

x coordinate of first point determinig the vector.

y1

y coordinate of first point determinig the vector.

x2

x coordinate of second point determinig the vector.

y2

y coordinate of second point determinig the vector.

x0

vector of x coordinates to locate relative to the vector \((x_2-x_1, y_2-y_1)\).

y0

vector of x coordinates to locate relative to the vector \((x_2-x_1, y_2-y_1)\).

eps

tolerance for checking if \(x_0,y_0\) is on or left of \((x_2-x_1, y_2-y_1)\), defaults to \(10^{-16}\).

Value

logical vector with the results of the test.

Examples
# NOT RUN {
y <- x <- c(0,1)
## should be TRUE
on(x[1],y[1],x[2],y[2],0.5,0.5)
## note the default setting of eps leading to
on(x[1],y[1],x[2],y[2],0.5,0.50000000000000001)
## also be TRUE

## should be TRUE
left(x[1],y[1],x[2],y[2],0.5,0.6)
## note the default setting of eps leading to
left(x[1],y[1],x[2],y[2],0.5,0.50000000000000001)
## already resulting to FALSE

# }
