libgeos: Open Source Geometry Engine ('GEOS') C API

Provides the Open Source Geometry Engine ('GEOS') as a C API that can be used to write high-performance C and C++ geometry operations using R as an interface. Headers are provided to make linking to and using these functions from C++ code as easy and as safe as possible. This package contains an internal copy of the 'GEOS' library to guarantee the best possible consistency on multiple platforms.
