##### Diameter of an Object

Computes the diameter of an object such as a two-dimensional window or three-dimensional box.

Keywords
spatial, math
##### Usage
diameter(x)
##### Arguments
x
A window or other object whose diameter will be computed.
##### Details

This function computes the diameter of an object such as a two-dimensional window or a three-dimensional box. The diameter is the maximum distance between any two points in the object.

The function diameter is generic, with methods for the class "owin" (two-dimensional windows), "box3" (three-dimensional boxes), "boxx" (multi-dimensional boxes) and "linnet" (linear networks).

##### Value

• The numerical value of the diameter of the object.
