Clipper Polygon Clipping Library, version 6.4.0

The Clipper library performs line & polygon clipping - intersection, union, difference & exclusive-or, and line & polygon offsetting.

Used in the QML plugin of Qt Location.

The sources can be found in qtlocation-opensource-src-29WtWo/qtlocation-opensource-src-5.12.8+dfsg/src/3rdparty/clipper.
