##### Side Lengths of Enclosing Rectangle of a Window

Computes the side lengths of the (enclosing rectangle of) a window.

##### Usage

```
## S3 method for class 'owin':
sidelengths(x)
``` ## S3 method for class 'owin':
shortside(x)

##### Arguments

- x
- A window whose side lengths will be computed.
Object of class
`"owin"`

.

##### Details

The functions `shortside`

and `sidelengths`

are generic.
The functions documented here are the methods for the class `"owin"`

.

`sidelengths.owin`

computes the
side-lengths of the enclosing rectangle of the window `x`

.

For safety, both functions give a warning if the window is not a rectangle.
To suppress the warning, first convert the window to a rectangle
using `as.rectangle`

.

`shortside.owin`

computes the minimum of the two side-lengths.

##### Value

- For
`sidelengths.owin`

, a numeric vector of length 2 giving the side-lengths ($x$ then $y$) of the enclosing rectangle. For`shortside.owin`

, a numeric value.

objects.

##### Examples

```
w <- owin(c(0,2),c(-1,3))
sidelengths(w)
shortside(as.rectangle(letterR))
```
