Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodStatic memberAreEqual
Compares two points and tells whether they are equal.
Public methodCompareTo
Compares two points. To use binarysearch somekind of sorting should be used.
Public methodEquals
Returns true if the current object and the given object are equal.
(Overrides ObjectEquals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCode
Returns a hash code for the point. Notice, in extremely rare cases, you might not get the same hash code for two points even though they are considered equal! This should, however, happen only in extremely rare cases!
(Overrides ObjectGetHashCode.)
Public methodToString
Formats the point into a string.
(Overrides ObjectToString.)
Public methodTranslate
Translates the point using the given vector.
Public methodZero
Zeros all the members of the point.
