## Detailed Description

A directed line segment.

## ◆ Segment() [1/2]

 ipe::Segment::Segment ( )
inline

Create uninitialized segment.

## ◆ Segment() [2/2]

 ipe::Segment::Segment ( const Vector & p, const Vector & q )
inlineexplicit

## ◆ line()

 Line ipe::Segment::line ( ) const
inline

Return directed line supporting the segment.

## ◆ distance() [1/2]

 double Segment::distance ( const Vector & v, double bound ) const

Returns distance between segment and point v, but may just return bound when its larger than bound.

Referenced by ipe::CurveSegment::distance().

## ◆ distance() [2/2]

 double Segment::distance ( const Vector & v ) const

Returns distance between segment and point v

References ipe::Vector::factorize().

## ◆ project()

 bool Segment::project ( const Vector & v, Vector & projection ) const

Project point v orthogonally on segment. Returns false if the point falls outside the segment.

References ipe::Vector::factorize().

Referenced by ipe::Bezier::snap().

## ◆ intersects() [1/2]

 bool Segment::intersects ( const Segment & seg, Vector & pt ) const

Compute intersection point. Return `false` if segs don't intersect.

References iP, iQ, and line().

Referenced by ipe::Bezier::intersect(), and ipe::Bezier::snap().

## ◆ intersects() [2/2]

 bool Segment::intersects ( const Line & l, Vector & pt ) const

Compute intersection point. Return `false` if no intersection.

## ◆ snap()

 bool Segment::snap ( const Vector & mouse, Vector & pos, double & bound ) const

Snap mouse position to this segment.

If distance between mouse and the segment is less than bound, then set pos to the point on the segment, bound to the distance, and return true.

References ipe::Linear::Linear(), and ipe::Vector::snap().

## ◆ iP

 Vector ipe::Segment::iP

First endpoint.

## ◆ iQ

 Vector ipe::Segment::iQ

Second endpoint.
