## Detailed Description

Represents a homogeneous coordinate in a 2-D coordinate space.

HCoordinate are used as a clean way of computing intersections between line segments.

Computes the (approximate) intersection point between two line segments using homogeneous coordinates.

Note
this algorithm is not numerically stable; i.e. it can produce intersection points which lie outside the envelope of the line segments themselves. In order to increase the precision of the calculation input points should be normalized before passing them to this routine.
