octave_distance, an Octave code which estimates the typical distance between a pair of points randomly selected from the surface or interior of a geometric object such as a circle, disk, sphere, cube.

- polygon_distance_histogram.m, displays a histogram from N samples of pairwise distances.
- polygon_distance_stats.m, estimates the statistics of the pairwise distance, using sampling.
- polygon_sample.m, returns a random point in a polygon.
- polygon_triangulate.m, triangulates a polygon.
- r8mat_transpose_print.m, prints the transpose of an R8MAT;
- r8mat_transpose_print_some.m, prints some of the transpose of an R8MAT;
- triangle_area.m, computes the area of a triangle.
