geometry

 detail
 give a detailed description of an object, or a list or set of objects

 Calling Sequence detail(g)

Parameters

 g - geometric object or list or set of geometric objects

Description

 • The routine gives a detailed description of an object, or a list or set of objects
 • For each geometric object supported by the package, the name and the form of the object are printed out. Besides that information additional information is also printed out depending on the form of the object.
 • The command with(geometry,detail) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{geometry}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{point}\left(A,\sqrt{5-{3}^{\frac{1}{3}}},\frac{3}{4}\right):$
 > $\mathrm{detail}\left(A\right)$
 $\begin{array}{ll}{\text{name of the object}}& {A}\\ {\text{form of the object}}& {\mathrm{point2d}}\\ {\text{coordinates of the point}}& \left[\sqrt{{5}{-}{{3}}^{{1}}{{3}}}}{,}\frac{{3}}{{4}}\right]\end{array}$ (1)
 > $\mathrm{circle}\left(c,{\left(x-\sqrt{2}\right)}^{2}+{y}^{2}=1,\left[x,y\right]\right):$
 > $\mathrm{detail}\left(c\right)$
 $\begin{array}{ll}{\text{name of the object}}& {c}\\ {\text{form of the object}}& {\mathrm{circle2d}}\\ {\text{name of the center}}& {\mathrm{center_c}}\\ {\text{coordinates of the center}}& \left[\sqrt{{2}}{,}{0}\right]\\ {\text{radius of the circle}}& {1}\\ {\text{equation of the circle}}& {{x}}^{{2}}{-}{2}{}\sqrt{{2}}{}{x}{+}{{y}}^{{2}}{+}{1}{=}{0}\end{array}$ (2)
