    ReQL command: polygonSub

    Command syntax

    polygon1.polygonSub(polygon2) → polygon

    Description

    Use polygon2 to “punch out” a hole in polygon1. polygon2 must be completely contained within polygon1 and must have no holes itself (it must not be the output of polygonSub itself).

    Example: Define a polygon with a hole punched in it.

    import com.rethinkdb.gen.ast.Polygon;
    
    Polygon outerPolygon = r.polygon(
        [-122.4,37.7],
        [-122.4,37.3],
        [-121.8,37.3],
        [-121.8,37.7]
    );
    Polygon innerPolygon = r.polygon(
        [-122.3,37.4],
        [-122.3,37.6],
        [-122.0,37.6],
        [-122.0,37.4]
    );
    outerPolygon.polygonSub(inner_polygon).run(conn);
