BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_RING_TEMPLATED

Macro to register a templated ring.

Description

The macro BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_RING_TEMPLATED registers a templated ring such that it is recognized by Boost.Geometry and that Boost.Geometry functionality can used with the specified type. The type must have one template parameter, which should be a point type, and should not be specified. Boost.Geometry takes care of inserting the template parameter. Hence all types of this templated ring are registered, regardless of their point type.

Synopsis

#define BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_RING_TEMPLATED(Ring)

Parameters

Name

Description

Ring

ring (without template parameters) type to be registered

Header

#include <boost/geometry/geometries/register/ring.hpp>

Example

Show the use of the macro BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_RING_TEMPLATED

#include <iostream>
#include <deque>

#include <boost/geometry.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/geometries/point_xy.hpp>
#include <boost/geometry/geometries/register/ring.hpp>

// Adapt any deque to Boost.Geometry Ring Concept
BOOST_GEOMETRY_REGISTER_RING_TEMPLATED(std::deque)

int main()
{
    std::deque<boost::geometry::model::d2::point_xy<double> > ring(3);
    boost::geometry::assign_values(ring[0], 0, 0);
    boost::geometry::assign_values(ring[2], 4, 1);
    boost::geometry::assign_values(ring[1], 1, 4);

    // Boost.Geometry algorithms work on any deque now
    boost::geometry::correct(ring);
    std::cout << "Area: "  << boost::geometry::area(ring) << std::endl;
    std::cout << "Contents: "  << boost::geometry::wkt(ring) << std::endl;

    return 0;
}

Output:

Area: 7.5
Line: ((0, 0), (1, 4), (4, 1), (0, 0))
