find the glide-reflection of a geometric object
GlideReflection(Q, P, l, AB)
the name of the object to be created
directed segment on l
Let l be a fixed line of the plane and AB a given directed segment on l. By the glide-reflection G⁡l,AB we mean the product R⁡lT⁡AB where R⁡l is the reflection with respect to the line l, and T⁡AB is the translation with respect to the directed segment AB. The line l is called the axis of the glide-reflection, and the directed segment AB on l is called the vector of the glide-reflection.
For a detailed description of Q (the object created), use the routine detail (i.e., detail(Q))
The command with(geometry,GlideReflection) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
