geometry[square] - define a square
square(Sq, [A, B, E, F] )
the name of the square
A, B, E, F
A square is an equilateral and equiangular parallelogram.
A square Sq is defined by a list of four given points in the correct order. For a list of four points A,B,E,F, the condition is that the segments AB, BE, EF, and FA must make a square.
To access the information relating to a square Sq, use the following function calls:
returns the form of the geometric object
(i.e., square2d if Sq is a square).
the list of four vertices of Sq.
the distance of the diagonal of Sq.
returns a detailed description of the object Sq.
The command with(geometry,square) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
define four points A(0,0), B(1,0), C(1,1) and F(0,1)
