determine if a point lies within the polygon formed by a list of points
PointInPolygon( P, Q )
a point in real 2-D space given as a list or rtable of coordinates
a list of points in real 2-D space
This command returns a string describing the orientation of the point P relative to the polygon formed by the points Q. If P is inside the polygon then the command returns "inside". If P is outside then "outside" is returned. If P lies on the boundary of the polygon, then "boundary" is returned.
