Description: FIST is code for fast industrial-strength triangulation based on repeatedly clipping the ears of a polygon. The algorithm was implemented in ANSI C, based on floating-point arithmetic. Geometric hashing is used in order to speed up the ear-clipping process in practice. Illustrations show triangulations computed by means of FIST. With related publications.
