This is some coordinate geometry functions for
Pari/GP. Most are fairly simple
lengths, areas, and inertia. Calculations are kept exact using quads as much
as possible. See the comments in `geom.gp`

and
`geom-inertia.gp`

for details.

`read("geom.gp");`

`geom_area_of_polygon([0, 1, 2+I, 1+2*I, I]) == 5/2`

`geom.gp`

is basic functions. The additional
`geom-inertia.gp`

has functions for mass moment of inertia
represented in 3×3 matrices. Both are slightly preliminary in places,
but do some useful things as far as they go.
