I'm an electrical engineer currently working as a software engineer and developer. Prior to that, I was a computer tech for 6 months at a independently owned computer store while I looked for an actual engineering job.

I'm a big gamer, with a lot of it taking place on the PC, but I also own a 360 and PS3.

Which side is "inside" isn't much of a concern for me as long as the object closes properly. I know that's a bit contradictory, as it's important to know which side is the inside in order to close it. I have another system that basically acts as my reference for drawing these objects (I'm implementing OTH-Gold Overlay support, if that means anything to you) which I believe takes whichever side contains both poles, or the side that contains the smaller are in the case of encompassing a pole as the inside.

@whuber: Which pole only matters when using a non-transparent fill. For your example, the fill side would be possibly undefined. Otherwise, it's generally the side with the smaller area. Polygons are less well defined than other objects like circles and sectors where the inside is pretty well defined.

@whuber: That sounds like it's on the same lines as the solution I presented, but it seems like that won't handle an enclosed pole.
