To determine if a mouse click (i.e. point) is inside your new convex polygon hull, you utilize a method of
point-in-polygon testing known as ray casting , which performs its test by casting a line through the 2D polygon,
through the point in question (see Figure 5-9 for an example). For each line that your ray intersects, you toggle a
Boolean value to determine if you're in or out of the polygon; see Listing 5-16.
Figure 5-9. An example of ray casting to determine if a point is in a polygon. The line runs through the polygon an even
number of times, signaling that the point is not inside the polygon boundaries
