Abstract We describe the design and implementation of a workbench for computational geometry. We discuss issues arising from this implementation, including comparisons of different algorithms for constant factors, code size, and ease of implementation. The workbench is not just a library of computational geometry algorithms and data structures, but is designed as a geometrical programming environment, providing tools for: creating, editing, and manipulating geometric objects; demonstrating and animating geometric algorithms; and, most importantly, for implementing and maintaining complex geometric algorithms.
