Closed (planar) curves arise, for example, as NC toolpaths. They are composed of various line and curve segments. While the intersection of the individual entities may be straightforward these then have to be regrouped to determine the outer boundary (which is taken to include the boundaries of the holes). A procedure and data structure for handling this rearrangment is described.
