hi Hartmut,

No, it is true that it didn't compile. Sorry for that.

The winding algorithm is agnostic and depends only on the "side"
algorithm. Which is there for cartesian and spherical (and, so,
geographic). Therefore it should run.

Unfortunately the side-for-spherical was in first phase and not really
tested, I just relooked at it and it needs some extra care. It does not
always gives the correct results. At least not for my Wrangel case,
which is actually a quite challenging case (most tools I used today fail
in a way for it...).

Do you need the point_ll_deg?

If you do, you can include the lines below somewhere in your code as a
temporary fix, it just defines the types to be used.

Regards, Barend
