How can I check if two lines (created with function love.graphics.line) are crossing themselves? I may use this ability to create procedural maps via graphs.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @MrCranky I think this is not directly game dev related. But line intersection is a common geometry problem. To some extent we accept graphics, geometry, math and physics questions. meta.gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/1419/… \$\endgroup\$ – concept3d Jan 22 '14 at 12:57
  • \$\begingroup\$ I was going on the basis that we closed an almost identical line-intersection problem (the one I linked to) as off-topic, including a comment suggesting it was better served on math.stackexchange. Even if it's on topic, it's most certainly a duplicate. \$\endgroup\$ – MrCranky Jan 22 '14 at 13:07
