Removed in LÖVE 0.8.0
This function is not supported in that and later versions.

Checks whether a line segment intersects a shape. This function will either return the "time" of impact and the surface normal at the point of collision, or nil if the line does not intersect the shape. The "time" is a value between 0.0 and 1.0 and can be used to calculate where the collision occured.



t, xn, yn = Shape:testSegment( x1, y1, x2, y2 )


number x1
The x-component of the first endpoint.
number y1
The y-component of the first endpoint.
number x2
The x-component of the second endpoint.
number y2
The y-component of the second endpoint.


number t
The time of impact, or nil if no impact.
number xn
The x-component of the surface normal.
number yn
The y-component of the surface normal.
