### Problem:
Q has a very simple representation of 2d geometric shape
coordinates, and he wants to pass them into some
functions to do very basic transformations. This is just
for a quick number-crunching throwaway script to generate
sample data.
### Question:
A quick search on CPAN doesn't seem to reveal anything that
directly addresses this simple need, and PDL looks like
extreme overkill. Can anyone suggest some very straightfoward and basic code to do coordinate
transformations indicated below (i.e., does it already
exist or is this a 'write it yourself' problem).
### init
$aCoords = [0,0 10,0 10,10 0,10]; ### a square
$bCoords = rotate($aCoords,45); ### a diamond
$cCoords = scale($aCoords,2.00); ### a bigger square
$dCoords = skew(...); ### etc.
$eCoords = translate(...);
The goal is simply to get a handful of small functions
like that to enable quick output of the new coordinates
to generate sample data. This isn't math homework, and
Q is not a whiz with matrix multiplications, hence the
inquiry.
