Properties of a Triangle

**TRIANGLE_PROPERTIES**
is a MATLAB program which
can compute properties, including angles, area, centroid, circumcircle,
edge lengths, incircle, orientation, orthocenter, and quality,
of a triangle in 2D.

These properties include:

- Angles;
- Area;
- Centroid;
- Circumcircle (center and radius);
- Edge lengths;
- Incircle (center and radius);
- Orientation;
- Orthocenter;
- Quality: ratio of incircle radius / circumcircle radius;

**TRIANGLE_PROPERTIES** is available in
a C version and
a C++ version and
a FORTRAN90 version and
a MATLAB version and
a Python version.
