DESCRIPTION
       These routines do arithmetic on points and planes in affine or  projec‐
       tive 3-space.  Type Point3 is

              typedef struct Point3 Point3;
              struct Point3{
                    double x, y, z, w;
              };

       Routines  whose names end in 3 operate on vectors or ordinary points in
       affine 3-space, represented by  their  Euclidean  (x,y,z)  coordinates.
       (They assume w=1 in their arguments, and set w=1 in their results.)

       Name   Description

       add3   Add the coordinates of two points.

       sub3   Subtract coordinates of two points.

       neg3   Negate the coordinates of a point.

       mul3   Multiply coordinates by a scalar.

       div3   Divide coordinates by a scalar.

       eqpt3  Test two points for exact equality.

       closept3
              Is the distance between two points smaller than eps?

       dot3   Dot product.

       cross3 Cross product.

       len3   Distance to the origin.

       dist3  Distance between two points.

       unit3  A unit vector parallel to p.

       midpt3 The midpoint of line segment pq.

       lerp3  Linear interpolation between p and q.

       reflect3
              The reflection of point p in the segment joining p0 and p1.

       nearseg3
              The closest point to testp on segment p0 p1.

       pldist3
              The distance from p to segment p0 p1.

       vdiv3  Vector  divide — the length of the component of a parallel to b,
              in units of the length of b.

       vrem3  Vector remainder —  the  component  of  a  perpendicular  to  b.
              Ignoring  roundoff,  we  have  eqpt3(add3(mul3(b,  vdiv3(a, b)),
              vrem3(a, b)), a).

       The following  routines  convert  amongst  various  representations  of
       points  and  planes.   Planes are represented identically to points, by
       duality;    a    point    p    is    on    a    plane    q     whenever
       p.x*q.x+p.y*q.y+p.z*q.z+p.w*q.w=0.   Although  when dealing with affine
       points we assume p.w=1, we can't make the same assumption  for  planes.
       The  names of these routines are extra-cryptic.  They contain an f (for
       `face') to indicate a plane, p for a point and n for a  normal  vector.
       The  number  2  abbreviates the word `to.'  The number 3 reminds us, as
       before, that we're dealing with affine  points.   Thus  pn2f3  takes  a
       point and a normal vector and returns the corresponding plane.

       Name   Description

       pn2f3  Compute the plane passing through p with normal n.

       ppp2f3 Compute the plane passing through three points.

       fff2p3 Compute the intersection point of three planes.

       The  names  of  the following routines end in 4 because they operate on
       points in projective 4-space, represented by their homogeneous  coordi‐
       nates.

       pdiv4  Perspective division.  Divide p.w into p's coordinates, convert‐
              ing to affine coordinates.  If p.w is zero, the  result  is  the
              same as the argument.

       add4   Add the coordinates of two points.

       sub4   Subtract the coordinates of two points.
