Polygon( <Point>, ..., <Point> )
Returns a polygon defined by the given points.
Example: Polygon((1, 1), (3, 0), (3, 2), (0, 4)) yields a quadrilateral.
Polygon( <Point>, <Point>, <Number of Vertices> )
Creates a regular polygon with n vertices.
Example: Polygon((1, 1), (4, 1), 6) yields a hexagon.
Polygon( <List of Points> )
Returns a polygon defined by the points in the list.
Example: Polygon({(0, 0), (2, 1), (1, 3)}) yields a triangle.
Polygon( <Point>, <Point>, <Number of Vertices n>, <Direction> )
Creates a regular polygon with n vertices, and directed by the direction (e.g. a plane to which the polygon will be parallel, if possible).
